The Distinguished Scholar Lecturer and Awardee is selected annually by the MURPAA Board of Directors in consultation with faculty from CU Denver’s Urban and Regional Planning Department. DLA recipients must be graduates of the CU Denver MURP program or have significant ties to the program through teaching or service. Recipients should have demonstrated professional leadership in the field, worked on innovative projects, implemented novel and forward-thinking planning programs, or otherwise made significant contributions to the field of urban planning through teaching, research, or practice. Typically, we will invite alumni who are at least five years past their degree, though this may vary based on their accomplishments and contributions to the field of urban planning.
