The Carolina Planning Journal (CPJ), based out of the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill’s Department of City and Regional Planning, is the oldest student-run planning journal in the country, with over four decades of history. It is designed and developed to share the work of practitioners, academics, and advanced students and to further conversations around planning locally as well as globally.
It is run in conjuncture with Carolina Angles, an associated blog providing regular updates of planning thoughts that range from serious to silly. It was developed to allow for quicker reactions to ongoing events, to act as a platform to amplify the thoughts of students and professionals alike, and to reach out to and engage a broader audience. I have been on the editorial board for both the blog and the journal since I began by PhD. Now, I am transitioning to the head editor of the Carolina Angles blog.
