Experience Before UEP
Property Consultant, Nexus Property Consultant Co., Ltd. Thailand
“One of the most appealing aspects of UEP that attracts me the most is the intimate learning environment that allows students to actively participate in discussion. By having small class sizes, students are able to share experiences, interests and at the same time learn new perspectives from others’ diverse backgrounds. I strongly believe that coming to UEP is the surest way to build my career path in planning profession.”
About SPA
In spring 2001, a group of UEP students formed the Student Planning & Policy Association (SPA, formerly SPPA). In 2012, students were interested in updating the organization and shortened the acronym to SPA to match UEP's brand.

The mission of SPA is to help broaden students' knowledge of urban and environmental planning and policy issues on a local, regional and national scale. SPA does this through organizing activities that are open to all UEP students. The group emphasizes that its goals and outreach efforts embrace all the various "disciplines" housed within UEP.

Overall, SPA seeks to provide a forum for activities that promote awareness of current trends and issues in urban and environmental policy and planning. A secondary (but very important) goal of SPA is to engage students in social events that enhance student life.

In addition to officers, there are also three committees to help organize SPA's activities and functions. The committees are Social, Professional, and New Student/Alumni Engagement.
