Welcome to the Planning Program at the University of Toronto!
We are a community of scholars, practitioners and activists engaged in studying the dynamics of city-regions and committed to fostering places that are sustainable, accessible, beautiful and just.
Our distinguished faculty bring an unusually wide variety of perspectives to bear on planning education – based on extensive research and outreach projects across the economic, social, urban, environmental and design dimensions of planning.
We welcome students with diverse educational backgrounds and work experiences aligned with the ideals of planning, those who belong to groups that are currently underrepresented in planning academia and practice, and those working in either domestic or international arenas, from Canada and other countries in the world.
As a Planning Program, we aim to:
- Emphasize issues of social justice and environmental sustainability across all specializations of planning.
- Bridge the imagined gap between theory and practice.
- Advocate an interdisciplinary, critical and engaged approach to planning.
- Attract a varied, representative, experienced, creative and critical student body every year.
