Summer 2014 NewsBytes

Author: 

The Summer2014 issue of NewsBytes covers activities and reflections from SCARP between March and June, 2014 (download it here!).  

A significant focus of this issue of NewsBytes is on SCARP's new MCRP program and the future move to Lasserre, with a "Director's Report" from Penny Gurstein, and a quick note from the "UBC SCARP Summer Alumni Social". The focus resurfaces in Peer-Daniel Krause's reflection from Maged Senbel's Urban Design Studio work with "False Creek South". We again congratulate Maged Senbel and Mark Stevens on their promotions to Associate Professor among other "Awards and Recognition", and take note of current and "Upcoming Study Leaves".

Summer brings with it a chance to get out and apply our knowledge gained at SCARP to real-world problems, and a handful of "Summer SCARPies" are working with various partners around Metro Vancouver. Ashley Lowcock provides a rundown on her "Megapolitan Experience" and Christa Brown  shares some highlights from the "2014 BC Land Summit". To round things off, Bethany Dobson encourages us to stay up to date with SCARP's wonderfully-named "Transpo' Nerd Club", and UBC Applied Science catches up with "Murray Mckenzie, Beyond SCARP." A final "Volunteer Appreciation" thanks the many student volunteers who contributed time and energy to different projects around SCARP through 2013-2014.

As this is my final NewsBytes before passing on the torch, I'd like to again thank everyone for their contributions over the past two years. It's been an incredibly satisfying experience and I hope I've been able to highlight the people, culture, and teachings at SCARP for all of us to enjoy. - Robert W. White
