PSO’s leadership team consists of an elected board, but all CRP students are considered members. PSO hosts both academic and social events for CRP students and alumni. PSO meets twice a month and all CRP students are welcome to the meetings. Meetings take place both virtually and in person, on the second and fourth Wednesdays of the month. Social activities such as happy hours, professional development networking, and participation in American Planning Association events are major components of the organization every year. 

Every fall, PSO supports the New Student Orientation, traditionally providing volunteers to help with activities and get incoming first-year students settled. In the Spring, PSO also provides support for the Open House for prospective students. 

The CRP program is a tight-knit family, and one of our goals is to foster that connection!
