David Godschalk has served as the faculty advisor for Carolina Planning since the journal was launched in 1975. He now shares his experience with the CP community. "I see Carolina Planning as a bridge between planning practice and planning education. Like all bridges, it is a combination of art, structure, and budget. However, the Carolina Planning bridge is unique in that it must be continuously rebuilt. Every year, a new team of editors must select important current articles, design the layout, arrange for printing, and collaborate with the North Carolina APA officers on a publication budget and distribution plan. Remarkably, this challenging enterprise has succeeded year after year for almost three decades."
