The Department of Urban Planning and Spatial Analysis is committed to infusing social justice into all that we do. Several years ago, we came together as faculty, staff and students with a unified goal to overhaul our department and expand this core value into more classes, initiatives, student organizations, and more. Today, we build upon our successful track record thus far and rededicate our intention to continue growing.
