Bloustein School to host seventh annual Krueckeberg Doctoral Conference

February 23, 2015

On Thursday, March 12, 2015, the Bloustein School will host the seventh annual Krueckeberg Doctoral Conference. The event honors the memory of the late Professor Donald Krueckeberg, who passed away in 2006.

Dr. Krueckeberg is remembered as “the bow-tied, bearded, meticulous, smiling professional upholder of academic, administrative and ethical standards; a passionate lover of cities and city pleasures who in his last years adored living a five-minute walk from work; a skillful skier, sailor and yachting commodore; and a quiet but steely moral guide to life in all its ups and downs.” Professor Krueckeberg left a notable legacy in his work, service, and family. As Professor and Associate Dean for Master’s and Professional Programs at the Bloustein School, Dr. Krueckeberg edited academic journals, served as President of the Association of Collegiate Schools of Planning, was elected to the College of Fellows of the American Institute of Certified Planners and authored texts considered pathbreaking in their fields.

With the growing recognition of the Bloustein School as a major contributor to urban planning, and policy studies, the Krueckeberg Conference has grown into a showcase of some of the most unique and forward-thinking research in the discipline. In addition to highlighting the best arguments and the most distinct voices in the Bloustein School’s doctoral program, in recent years the conference has expaned to include doctoral candidates in planning and public policy from other schools. This year’s conference includes participants from the The University of Pennsylvania, The New School, Cornell University, and CUNY.
