Please join us in congratulating the following UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs students in receiving honors and awards in transportation scholarship.
Kelcie Ralph (PhD ’15), Professor at Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy at Rutgers, has been awarded the Barclay Gibbs Jones Dissertation Prize for her dissertation, Analyzing the Nature of Recent Travel Changes for Young Adults in America, 1995 to 2009. Kelcie’s selection marks the first for a student from UCLA, though she joins many esteemed awardees from the University of California system.
The Barclay Gibbs Jones Dissertation Prize recognizes superior scholarship in a doctoral dissertation completed by a student enrolled in an ACSP-member school. The opportunity calls for theses that are original, well written, employ methods elegantly, offer lessons pertinent to central issues in the field of planning, and provide guidance about how planners or governments should make choices.
