Inclusive. Responsive. Cross-Disciplinary. Progressive. These are just a few of the characteristics that UAA embodies. More than an academic association, the leadership and staff within UAA create a community among a variety of professionals: established scholars, policy researchers, activists, local practitioners, and others. During my years as a graduate student, I gained practical knowledge and inspiration to cultivate my aspirations. The institutional support of UAA and its unique culture of openness extend beyond its annual conferences to allow for an interactive space to exchange ideas that hold promise for creating more just and equitable cities.
