The AICP Code of Ethics calls planners to “contribute time and resources to the professional 

development of students.” Community-based university class projects present opportunities and 

challenges for the communities requesting and contracting assistance and the faculty that lead the 

projects. This event will address the AICP Code of Ethics and the ethical dilemmas, issues, and 

duties associated with these projects. Lisa Koch, Assistant Professor of Practice at the University 

of Kansas, will provide a new spin on training by discussing ethics as it relates to student 

projects followed by a review of real-life scenarios. Lisa Koch will serve as facilitator to guide 

group discussion among attendees.


Attendees at this program will:


(1) Receive an overview of the AICP Code of Ethics;


(2) Discuss differences in aspiration principle and rules of conduct;


(3) Engage in discussions to consider how planners might react to example ethical situations or 

scenarios related to community-based student projects; and


(4) Consider different perspectives and variables to ethical dilemmas.
