Transportation and Land Use: Parking
Spring 2021 - I've rarely had poor experiences with Luskin professors and Don Shoup is no different. He literally wrote the textbook on parking reforms and is hence extremely knowledgeable on subject material. I found the workload heavy (weekly reading notes, two 2000-word memos and one final) and wished there was more guidance on what to expect for the final. However, I appreciated everything else: the readings came from a wide variety of sources, TA Nolan Gray was great, Prof Shoup was very responsive to emails and during office hours, and he invited many policymakers / consultants / academics studying different niches within parking policy to deliver guest lectures. Prof Shoup is definitely a one in a generation professor that consistently goes beyond the bare minimum to deliver quality lectures in the hope of educating the next gen of policymakers!
