Cornell University, Architecture, Art, and Planning
If you are passionate about creating better communities or preserving our built environment, Cornell can help you transform your passion into effective action. We help you understand the structural forces that cause social inequity, environmental damage, and economic decline. We also provide the tools, techniques, and strategies you will need as a planner to design more equitable, vibrant, beautiful, and sustainable places. Our students, who come from all over the United States and around the world, have pursued a wide range of undergraduate majors; most have also had real-world planning experience either during or after college. They bring to Cornell, and to the wider world, compassion, curiosity, and commitment.
