The College Overview

Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning at the University of Michigan aims to create a more beautiful, inclusive and better environment for generations to come. Through interdisciplinary education and research, we prepare graduates for positions of responsibility within a wide spectrum of professions, organizations, and institutions that shape the built environment at scales ranging from local to global.

In pursuit of these ideals for over 100 years, Taubman College offers students from the state, the country, and around the globe a complement of disciplinary and interdisciplinary degree programs ranging from pre-professional to post-professional to Ph.D. Our committed and energetic faculty, staff and students form a diverse, creative, and collaborative community within the University of Michigan, one of the world's largest research universities.

Taubman College has a long educational tradition that combines design and technology. Today, it continues to foster a broad view of architecture and urban and regional planning in the context of a major research institution.

Statement about Diversity:

Taubman College works to foster a supportive community for all students and believes a broadly diverse student body enriches the learning environment. We define diversity according to wide set of criteria, including financial need, geography, disability, commitment to service to diverse and disadvantaged communities, first-generation college graduate status, demonstrated ability to overcome obstacles, and more. We work not only to increase the diversity of our community but also to build a more welcoming and supportive environment for students once they arrive at Taubman College. This initiative comes within the larger environment of a university at the forefront of working toward a more diverse and representative academe. You can keep abreast of diversity issues at U-M via the University's multifaceted Diversity Matters web site. This site serves as the gateway to the many people and programs that support and advance diversity at the University of Michigan.
