Urban Planning

The College

Urban and regional planners do many types of jobs and are involved in almost any kind of government or private activity which seeks to affect the future or respond to community change. The majority of planners work in traditional planning areas such as land use, environmental protection, economic development, transportation, community design, housing, and social planning. Other planners work in less traditional areas, often with people from other disciplines, in areas such as healthy communities, smart growth, energy development or school planning.
