Announcing the Janet L. Smith Practitioner in Residence Fund Heading link

In celebration of our late Co-Director Janet L. Smith, we are excited to announce the Janet L. Smith Practitioner in Residence Fund. Practitioner in residence awards will be granted to experienced professionals who work or have worked in non-profits, academia, and government in the areas of community development and housing policy. Awardees will spend time on campus at the Voorhees Center participating in research, technical assistance, and related programming, as well as interacting with students as professional mentors, guest speakers, and instructors for courses taught in the Urban Planning and Policy Department.

We ask Janet’s friends and supporter to celebrate her memory in an enduring way by chipping in what they can to support the program.
