  • Pin Drop from SCaRP 60th Anniversary

175 alumni and friends returned to Georgia Tech 1-3 March to mark the university’s 60th anniversary of city planning education. The weekend began with a Friday reception in Stubbins Gallery, where planning works by alumni and current students were on display. APA President Mitchell Silver, AICP, talked about SCaRP and the broader planning field’s impact on shaping the built environment over the past 60 years.

Saturday included tours of campus developments and planning highlights around Atlanta and finished with a gala at the Georgia Tech Hotel. During the gala, school chair Bruce Stiftel recognized Arthur Campbell (MCP ‘70) as a Distinguished Alumnus, and alumni from each of the past six decades and one current student shared memories of their time at Tech and aspirations for the future of the school.  In addition, a 60th Anniversary Fund to benefit students in the School of City and Regional Planning was inaugurated.

At a Sunday brunch, an exploratory committee was formed to increase alumni activities and involvement with the School
