16th Annual Krueckeberg Doctoral Conference in Urban Studies, Urban Planning, and Public Policy

April 5 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

The Bloustein School will present the 16th Annual Krueckeberg Doctoral Conference in Urban Studies, Urban Planning, and Public Policy on Friday, April 5, 2024. The conference is organized by doctoral students for doctoral students engaged in urban planning, urban studies, health, and policy-related research across disciplines and universities in the tri-state NJ-NY-PA metropolitan region. Named after Professor Donald A. Krueckeberg, the conference commemorates Don Krueckeberg’s long-running commitment to doctoral education by providing a one-day forum highlighting doctoral student research at the cutting edge of urban studies, planning, and public policy.

Doctoral students at any stage of dissertation research are invited and encouraged to present their work at the conference. First-year doctoral students are invited to participate to try out a topic, and advanced candidates may present sections of research or a finished dissertation, or anywhere in between. Past presentations have outlined tentative research topics, surveyed literature, reported interim findings, and overviewed completed dissertations. The conference aims to encourage questions, comments, and discussions during each session.

Abstracts are accepted for submission through 5pm on Friday, March 8, 2024 at https://go.rutgers.edu/krueckebergabstract
