Matt Novacevski

Students’ Choice Award

“Matt's love for planning and placemaking is truly infectious. I came into this course ready to be cynical about the professional practice of planning but a year in I have a real faith in how much capacity planners and planning scholars have to enact justice and motivate change and much of that comes down to Matt's guidance. He builds opportunities to participate in justice and diverse practice into his tutorials, always encouraging students to be mindful of biases but also proud of their own ideas and creativity, and actively drawing upon their individual backgrounds to stand apart and represent others.”
