  • The Department of City and Regional Planning (DCRP) at the University of North Carolina (UNC) at Chapel Hill is celebrating the twentieth anniversary of Carolina Planning. The students of DCRP began what has become the twenty-year tradition of Carolina Planning with the publication of the first issue during the summer of 1975. This article reviews the efforts of DCRP students, faculty, staff, and alumni who have contributed to the founding and success of Carolina Planning. The idea for Carolina Planning was developed by Nancy Grden. Jim Miller, and myself, three UNC planning graduate students, during our 1974 summer internships in Washington, DC. Fresh from the completion of our first year of graduate planning education, excited by our first contact with professional planning practice, and undeterred by practical considerations, we undertook a modest endeavor. We began to discuss and develop a proposal for a student-run journal addressing public policy issues in the planning field.
