CRP Undergrad Club is open to all ISU students interested in creating change or asking questions within the context of urban planning and design. The club serves as a place to push the boundaries of planning by closing the gap between theory and practice, with special focus on the city of Ames and the smaller community of Campustown. CRP Undergrad Club's ultimate mission is to engage ISU students with the topic of planning and to create connections between CRP Undergrad students. In addition, club members annually attend the state planning conference to better understand their future roles as planners.
