PCSE advocates for and creates community for students of color and allies at UCLA Urban Planning. The committee structure corresponds to each stage of UCLA Urban Planning where the group traditionally has an impact. The work of the PCSE Steering Committee should be open, integrated, and collaborative. The newly structured positions ensure that each committee member is accountable to specific responsibilities within the broader mission of PCSE, and each committee member should be accountable to each other. Within this structure, the committee should be flexible to direct PCSE how they feel fit. The term for the 2017-18 Committee is Winter 2018 through Fall 2018.
Available 2017-2018 Steering Committee positions:
- Operations/Organizing Co-chairs (2 positions)
- Recruitment Coordinators (2 positions; previously Outreach & Engagement Co-chairs, Planning Pipeline Co-chairs)
- Admissions Liaisons (2 positions; previously Outreach & Engagement Co-chairs, Planning Pipeline Co-chairs)
- Events Coordinators (2 positions; previously Advocacy Co-chairs, Outreach & Engagement Co-chairs)
- Alumni Liaisons (2 positions; previously Professional Development Co-chairs)

Wondering about the PCSE Scholarship and why we’re asking for your support?
Check out this video of last year’s recipients Aleli Balaguer and Noel Rafael Lopez-Ramis reflect on the PCSE Scholarship, which provides funding for students dedicated to a planning education and practice focused on diversity, justice, and equity. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to support future UCLA planning students of color. Any amount is appreciated!

The Movement for Black Lives recently released their official policy platform with demands for black power, freedom, and justice.
The steering committee of PCSE felt strongly it was our duty to endorse the platform as an organization in order to stand and organize in solidarity. We encourage you to sign on as an individual and share with your own networks: https://campaigns.organizefor.org/efforts/m4bl
