Urban planners must adapt to changing social needs as the profession evolves. Planning students’ views on the profession during COVID-19 are examined in this paper. This study collected discussions from students on a virtual bulletin board. Students were asked how planners support public health protocols, what planning products need updating, and how planners can meet future challenges. Students believe urban planners are crucial for public health and safety and that infrastructure planning and development should anticipate uncertainties. This study shows how early tertiary students view their future careers and that planners must anticipate planning and development uncertainties.
