Urban and regional planning Professor Richard Willson will host a workshop inspired by his latest book, A Guide for the Idealist. A longtime mentor to urban planning students and young planning professionals, Willson tackles early practice and career "launching" issues: Being right, avoiding wrong, navigating managers, organizations and teams, working with mentors, and understanding the career journey, and calls on planners to reflect on what they are doing as they are doing it. 

Throughout October and November, the College of Environmental Design is organizing the 2017 ENV Festival, a series of events to collectively demonstrate to the world the diversity of issues and enterprises that highlight the work and interests of students, faculty, staff and alumni.
