The School of Urban and Regional Planning and Geography working together

Queen’s University has been a leading centre for education, research and outreach on urban and regional planning for almost 80 years, most recently through the School of Urban and Regional Planning (SURP), founded in 1970, and the Department of Geography, founded in 1960. As of July 1, 2014 SURP will join with the Department of Geography to form a new academic unit in the Faculty of Arts and Science. This move will promote collaboration and allow the new unit to develop new programs that will maintain Queen’s at the forefront of planning research, teaching and outreach in Canada, and enhance its international presence.
