In my presidential address in Atlanta at the annual conference of the Association of Collegiate Schools of Planning October 1985, I chose to highlight concerns arising from the influx into American planning schools of large numbers of international students, primarily from developing countries. It was clear to me that planning schools were largely unprepared to cope with this new challenge to planning education in the United States. It was apparent that some fresh perspectives on these issues are needed.
