The Colloquium presents a series of guest lectures by planning faculty, faculty from other disciplines (including architecture) doing relevant research, PhD students, and occasional school guests.   Our objective is to introduce the range of interests of the instructors and advanced students you will meet during your studies with us.  You will find that it is a broad spectrum, ranging from post-communist planning in Baltic nations to advanced modeling of walking behavior.  You will learn about the breadth of the planning discipline and the varied opportunities you might have to explore specialized topics with members of our faculty.  You will also learn about the motivations for, and challenges of, planning research.
