75th Planniversary Graphic


The Urban & Regional Planning Program is excited to celebrate our 75th Planniversary! So much has changed in the field of urban and regional planning since our Michigan State University program was established in 1946. While the practice of urban and regional planning has evolved significantly since those post-war years, one thing has remained steadfast – MSU’s commitment to educating the next generation of urban planners, and preparing them to use their skills to benefit communities around the world.

With this in mind, we will be hosting several Planniversary activities in Fall 2021 that will take place virtually and hopefully in-person, if possible. As we embark on this year of celebration, we invite you reconnect with us, through the opportunities outlined below. More details about activities are coming soon.

Whether you are recent grad or a recent retiree, we thank you for your passion and commitment to the field of urban and regional planning. Go Green!
