If you care about the present and future sustainability of neighborhoods, cities, and regions then look no further than Community & Regional Planning.
We are practitioners and scholars engaged in developing practice- and policy-based solutions to the pressing social, environmental, and economic challenges faced by communities in Philadelphia, the greater Philadelphia region, the US, and communities across the globe.
We are educating the next generation of leaders with the essential knowledge, skills, and values to work collaboratively with stakeholders to establish lasting improvements in the quality of life of residents.
The department offers a BS Community Development and MS Community and Regional Planning, which is accredited by the Planning Accreditation Board. Both programs integrate theory, methods, practice and service learning to provide students with an in-depth understanding of urban problems, ability to craft solutions, and capacity to act and to affect lasting change.
