Student Planning Organization (SPO)
Welcome to the Student Planning Organization of the Department of Urban and Regional Planning at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
SPO's mission is to provide a vehicle for communication between staff, faculty and students in the planning program, provide forums for workshops and discussions, and organize social events for the department.
SPO is a student run organization that focuses on student needs. If you are interested in coming to Illinois as an undergrad or graduate student, we want to help!
For more information about the SPO, including bylaws and meeting mintues, check out the DURP student wiki
We hope everyone who attended had an outstanding experience at the 2013 APA National Conference in Chicago!
The details for the upcoming APA-IL Chapter Conference will be posted here as soon as they are available.
Next semester we will have plenty of professional development events that will help you to sharpen your skills and get the job you want! Information about those events will be posted here.
Stay tuned for the next SPO social event!
The date, time, and speakers for the first Saturday Seminar of the new semester will be shown here as soon as it is organized.
The date and time of the first SPO general meeting for next semester is currently TBD.
