The admissions and recruiting staff attend local and regional recruiting events, hold prospective student information sessions, webinars, open house and admitted student preview weekends for prospective students and their families. These events allow prospective students to learn about the depth and breadth of resources at Taubman College.

The study of architecture and urban planning provides students with an opportunity to explore the world around them and provides an introduction to designing the space and buildings within it. These interdisciplinary professions are for individuals with a passion for designing the built environment and a desire to address the environmental challenges facing us today.
