The School of Public Policy and Urban Affairs

We prepare leaders to address complex problems, serve communities and build a just, sustainable, and resilient world.

Majors, Minors, & Grad Programs

Educating tomorrow’s changemakers

We drive interdisciplinary thinking and problem solving on issues of pressing concern to society at local, state, national, and international levels – from transportation, housing, energy and community development to social and environmental justice, resilience and sustainability.

By educating students in both theory and practice, we prepare them to become effective contributors to social, economic, and environmental change, in careers spanning the public, private, and nonprofit sectors, as well as academic research.
