Jane Clough-Riquelme ’85


Jane Clough-Riquelme ’85 recently received the Paul Davidoff Award—the National Planning Achievement Award for Advancing Diversity and Social Change—from the American Planning Association. Tribal liaison for the San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG), Clough-Riquelme works with the 17 federally recognized tribal nations in the San Diego area to facilitate their involvement in the regional planning process, especially transportation planning. Her work led to an agreement between the Southern California Tribal Chairmen’s Association (SCTCA) and the SANDAG Board in which SCTCA joined the SANDAG Board and its policy advisory committees, instituting the first tribal membership in that regional planning agency. Previously, Clough-Riquelme directed the sustainable development research program at the University of California–San Diego’s Center for U.S.-Mexican Studies. She has also worked with indigenous communities in Latin America through the United Nations Development Programme and the Inter-American Development Bank. Clough-Riquelme was also co-editor of the book Equity and Sustainable Development: Reflections from the U.S.-Mexico Border (Lynne Rienner, 2006).
