Urban and Regional Planning Advisory Council

The Urban and Regional Planning Advisory Council (URPAC) supports and maintains a dialogue between planners, allied professionals, planning faculty, and graduate students. This dialogue allows for those outside the Planning Program to stay informed and supportive of the Planning Program’s educational and research goals and objectives. In turn, URPAC allows the Planning Program to remain aware of the changing professional environment in planning and community issues. The Urban and Regional Planning Advisory Council serves as a primary liaison between the profession and the academic sector of the University. It is the means by which the community and professionals can help the Planning Program access resources for its students. We appreciate their support and guidance.
