Brian Taylor, professor of urban planning at the UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs, has been named a Fellow of the American Institute of Certified Planners.
“Fellows of the AICP are honored in recognition of the achievements of the planner as an individual, elevating the Fellow before the public and the profession as a model planner who has made significant contributions to planning and society,” according to the national award organization. Fellowship is granted to planners who have been members of AICP and have achieved excellence in professional practice, teaching and mentoring, research, public and community service, and leadership.
Taylor, who also is the director of the Lewis Center at the UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs, will be honored along with the rest of the 2012 Class of AICP Fellows during this year’s National Planning Conference on April 15, 2012. He joins UCLA Professor of Urban Planning, Donald Shoup, who was previously named an AICP Fellow.
