Welcome to the Student Zone of the CIP website!
This section is devoted to students interested in an education in planning and student membership in CIP. It has information on planning programs in Canada and the U.S., resources available to planning students, how to become a student member of CIP and the benefits of student membership.
If you are a high school student or returning student and you are interested in what a career in planning is about, you should read the section of our website entitled “Planning is...” for information on the planning profession and what you can expect if you decide to pursue a career in planning.
If you have decided that planning is for you, check out the benefits of becoming a student member and news and information for planning students included in this section.
Student membership in CIP will expand your resources and networking opportunities while in school.
