Attention professional planners! Be a mentor to a novice planner even if your time is limited. Spend 30 minutes each with three graduating UIC MUPP Students to review their work and offer constructive advice on Tuesday, April 13, 2021 between 4:30 PM and 6:00 PM.

It is a great way to help students prepare for the job market and ensure that the they can compose practically relevant and professionally competent products. We will match you to a few students and offer a bit of counsel to help you do a portfolio review synchronously via Zoom.

We are particularly interested in making sure that students get advice from a diverse pool of experienced planners. Students will be developing careers in a wide range of planning-related occupations. Please contact Prof. Curt Winkle at to express your interest in becoming a Portfolio Reviewer.
