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.
With warm regards,
Uwe S. Brandes, M.Arch
