Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy


RUTGERS UNIVERSITY OFFERS ONLINE PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT FOR URBAN PLANNERS

The Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy, one of the top planning schools in the United States, is offering online professional development courses in land use law, leadership and management, and urban design and placemaking.

Designed to meet the needs of busy professionals, Bloustein Online Continuing Education for Planners (BOCEP) will offer nine courses between April and September 2005. Each five-week course is taught at a graduate level by experts in the subject. Students can get to the course from any computer with an Internet connection, and participate at their convenience. There are no scheduled class meetings.

The following courses are scheduled for the spring and summer:
• Land Use Laws In New Jersey, April 18 to May 20
• Current Trends In Land Use Law, June 1 to July 6
• Redevelopment Law And Legal Issues, July 11 to August 15
• Leadership Skills For Planners, April 18 to May 20
• Alliance And Partnership Building, June 1 to July 6
• Strategic Planning And Implementation, July 11 to August 15
• Neighborhood And Brownfield Redevelopment, April 18 to May 20
• Urban Design, June 1 to July 6
• Transportation Planning For Placemaking, July 11 to August 15

Every class will provide ample opportunities for planners to discuss issues and resolve problems in collaboration. Working professionals and expert researchers will teach the courses.

The BOCEP initiative is designed to further the school's mission, said Bloustein Dean James W. Hughes. "BOCEP will strengthen the profession by providing planners convenient access to knowledge that will help them in their work," Dean Hughes said. "We will also use some of the program revenues to support research and community engagement."

While courses are not eligible for graduate credit, students who complete a track of courses will receive a Certificate of Completion from the Bloustein School.

Each course costs $250, but discounts up to $100 are available for Bloustein School alumni and members of these partnering organizations: Planners Network, and the New York and New Jersey chapters of the American Planning Association. Each class is limited to 25 students. Interested planners should reserve a seat to ensure that they will be able to get into their preferred course.
