Message from the Faculty Director

Welcome to Georgetown University’s Urban & Regional Planning program! Our mission is to prepare aspiring leaders to become professional urban planners who are ready to take on the many unprecedented challenges in cities around the world. We believe that urban planners are professional executives and representatives of community, who work across disciplines and the scales of neighborhoods, towns, cities, and metropolitan regions—and do so in an ethical and transparent manner.

Housed within the state-of-the-art Georgetown downtown D.C. campus, we are situated within one of the most important cities in the world—Washington, D.C.—a vibrant urban marketplace with deep traditions of civic planning and many local, national, and international organizations engaged in helping to forge sustainable communities. We believe that when urban planners combine knowledge, expertise, and civic leadership, they can deliver outcomes for communities that very often defy conventional wisdom.

On behalf of our distinguished faculty, I welcome you to reach out to us, come visit us, or participate in one of our many special events. Beyond being an assembly of students, faculty, and alumni, our program represents a vibrant community of practice and a global network of mission-driven professionals. We are embedded in a global university and situated within one of the most important cities in the world, where decisions shaping the future of cities are debated on a daily basis.

I cannot imagine a better learning environment.

With warm regards,
