The Association of Graduate Planners (AGP) collectively represents graduate planners to the University of Waterloo, the Faculty of Environmental Studies, and to the planning profession at large. The AGP maximizes academic and social benefits for graduate planning students through the development of networks, activities, and partnerships.
The role of AGP

We believe in assisting the student body in making extraordinary contributions to society by forging the ideas of tomorrow with the research and relationships of today. We believe that every incoming graduate planning student should be welcomed into the graduate planning community through orientation and mentoring to make their graduate experience successful and fun.
