Student and Alumni Spotlights

Bloustein alumni partner with APA_NJ to bring City Planning Institute to students of Passaic and Paterson

During the summer of 2017, the New Jersey Chapter of the American Planning Association partnered with several organizations to create the City Planning Institute, a two-week program in City Planning for public high school students from the cities of Passaic and Paterson. The other partners were with the Center for Community Planning, the New Jersey Community Development Corporation, Passaic County Community College, the Paterson Board of Education and the Passaic Board of Education. Funding for the program came from the Valley National Bank, the New Jersey Community Development Corporation, APA-NJ, and through the generous donations of members of APA-NJ and the Bloustein Alumni Association. The classes were held at the Passaic County Community College.
