Students Report Problems At ASU's Planning School

Twenty-one ASU planning students submit a grievance letter to the School's director.

"In a letter addressed to Hemalata Dandekar, director of the School of Planning, the students listed nine issues they thought needed to be addressed within the school, including low faculty morale, staff unresponsiveness and faculty retention difficulties.

...When we were admitted to the program until now when we're graduating, she [Dandekar] has not addressed us or stated where the program is headed," one student reports.
