Best Paper Award: Sarmiento

Assist Prof Carolina Sarmiento

The Association of Collegiate Schools of Planning (ASCP) awards committee announced SoHE Assistant Professor Carolina Sarmiento has received the Chester Rapkin Award for Best Paper in the Journal of Planning Education and Research.

Research conducted by Sarmiento and Sims speaks to urban planners, community organizations and policy makers who are concerned about the growing need for affordable housing and how to address the issue. While the “go-to” strategy for urban planners has been to build affordable housing in communities that are facing threats of displacement and gentrification, research shows the need for a more nuanced way of determining affordability.
