Mission Statement

The North American Regional Science Council (NARSC) promotes the scholarly exchange of ideas and knowledge that apply to urban and regional phenomena in North America and across the globe. The association fosters exchange across academic disciplines and builds on the understanding that urban and regional issues are best addressed by utilizing tools, methods, and theoretical frameworks specifically designed for regional analysis, as well as concepts, procedures, and analytical techniques of the various social and other sciences. The association organizes an annual national conference that provides a forum for interaction and discussion, and sponsors scholarly regional science journals for the dissemination of research and ideas. NARSC is an objective, scientific body without political, social, financial, or nationalistic bias.

We are committed to creating a welcoming environment where everyone can fully participate, regardless of any accessibility challenges they may face. Our goal is to host an inclusive conference that accommodates the needs of all individuals, including those with disabilities, allergies, or other specific requirements.

If you require any accommodations to ensure your full participation or have any questions about accessibility, please don’t hesitate to reach out to John Sporing at executivedirector@narsc.org prior to the conference. Your comfort and engagement are important to us, and we are here to assist in any way we can to make your experience enjoyable and inclusive. We recognize that building this environment requires proactive engagement from all members.
