College of Architecture and Planning

Associate Professor of Practice in CAP nationally recognized

Associate Professor of Practice Bruce A. Race has been selected as a Fellow of the American Institute of Certified Planners (AICP).  Fellows of AICP are honored in recognition of the achievements of the planner as an individual, elevating the Fellow before the public and the profession as a model planner who has made significant contributions to planning and society. Fellowship is granted to planners who have been members of AICP and have achieved excellence in professional practice, teaching and mentoring, research, public and community service, and leadership. Those chosen become members of the College of Fellows.

“This is recognition for past work and also for his excellent work and dedication benefitting our students every day. I am proud to be a colleague,” said Dan Woodfin, professor of architecture.

Mr. Race resides, teaches and practices in Indianapolis and is a Distinguished Alumnus of Ball State University’ College of Architecture and Planning. Before returning to Indianapolis in 2009, he founded RACESTUDIO in Berkeley, California. Mr. Race has spent the last 18 years assembling interdisciplinary teams to address some of the most challenging planning assignments in the United States. His projects have received 30 planning awards (15 from the APA) including national awards from the American Planning Association, Environmental Protection Agency, American Institute of Architects and Society of College and University Planning. His urban planning talent, practice experience and research interests intersect in his studios where he emphasizes community engagement, innovation and comprehensiveness.
This is one of the highest honors that the AICP can bestow upon a member. Induction will take place in a special ceremony later this year at the national conference of the American Planning Association in Los Angeles.
