MUEP - Program Indicators

<

The Planning Accreditation Board, which oversees accreditation for all planning degree programs in North America, mandates that all accredited Planning programs publish specified program information. Additionally, each university is to highlight their program's performance indicators and detail the current achievement of those goals. We hope you find this information useful in deciding whether our graduate program is a good fit for you. Additionally, you can view our Strategic Plan. The Planning Accreditation Board requires this information be posted for the Masters of Urban and Environmental Planning program:
