Expanded Horizons - Pittsburgh
Each year the Urban and Regional Planning program at the University of Michigan’s Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning selects a city or urban region to visit. The experience, known as Expanded Horizons, is designed to engage Master of Urban Planning (M.U.P.) students with planning professionals, neighborhood associations, urban designers, and even architects in an intensive on-site field study aimed at exposure and understanding of the planning profession.
This year MUPs will be traveling to Steel City, a.k.a. Pittsburgh, PA. The first-years will be joined by the fantastic Expanded Horizons committee that has been working on planning this trip throughout last semester and this past summer.
During our visit to Pittsburgh we’ll be staying at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel in the heart of downtown Pittsburgh. We have over 15 site visits planned, as well as some fun activities to do during free time. As the trip approaches we’ll be posting updates on the trip including information about site visits, other fun activities, and info on Pittsburgh. Stay tuned and incoming-MUPs, mark your calendars!
