Our mission is to create opportunities for students, alumni, faculty, and associates in the Master of City Planning, Master of Urban Affairs, and Bachelor of Science in Urban Affairs programs to get to know each other, learn, and explore their chosen career paths.

Our Action Statement 

The Urban Planning Association hosts cross-cultural social, learning, and networking events meant to bolster the sense of community and to further participants’ interests into the various fields within urban affairs and city planning. We take our love of all things urban out of the classroom and into casual conversation, the field, and beyond.

On-hand for these events are current students, recognized professors, and many of the MCP/UA graduates who can be found working at all levels of local and state government, town and regional planning councils, private firms, and not-for-profits. We also welcome anyone from BU and the Boston Consortium interested in city planning and urban affairs.
