What do sustainable city planning, community change, food security, transportation planning, and nonprofit administration have in common? All are rooted in bettering the communities in which we live, work, and play. Study in the School of Planning, Public Policy and Management (PPPM), and you’ll discover how governments, nonprofit organizations, and private-sector firms address some of the most important problems facing society today. You’ll also learn how you can play a key role in finding innovative solutions.
