People take part in the planning process at every level—from city councils and planning commissions to businesses and neighborhood groups. We guide decision-makers toward the best choices to help communities accommodate change. Our efforts require that we work with people.
For us, urban planning is about being community minded and socially engaged. Our department has over 100 years of history in Illinois urban planning education. Located in the College of Fine and Applied Arts, we incorporate design components into our curricula, while providing a planning education with firm roots in the social and policy sciences. We are people focused on people.
We hope you will join us in helping to make a better future.
