Is Planning a career for me?

  • Are you interested in positive social, economic environmental, and physical change?
  • Do you want to work with people from various backgrounds to develop a better community?
  • Do you like to communicate with others about ideas, programs, and plans?
  • Are you challenged by complex problems and excited about being part of a cooperative process to devise solutions to those problems?
  • Do you think about the future, a vision for what could be, rather than what is?

If you answered "YES" to any of these questions, you should seriously consider joining the Department of Urban + Regional Planning and a career in Urban Planning.
