Urban & Regional Planning

Founded in 1970 by Stanley Lash as an independent interdisciplinary school within the School of Graduate Studies, the School of Urban and Regional Planning (SURP) recently celebrated its 50th anniversary. More than 60 students, faculty, and alumni gathered to celebrate the milestone event and participate in a series of panel discussions.

It’s plan selection time in the Faculty of Arts and Science. Students are busy making the important decision of which area of study they wish to pursue during their time at Queen’s University.

From now until May 27, students who have completed 24 units or more must declare their plan in SOLUS. For upper-year students this may involve requesting to change their degree program.

A total of 502 student-athletes have been named Academic All-Stars, including 206 undergraduate and eight graduate students from the Faculty of Arts and Science, an increase of 40 over last year in FAS. These student-athletes have achieved an 80 per cent average (3.5 GPA) or above over the past academic year and compete on a varsity team or varsity club.

Forty undergraduate and graduate students in the Faculty of Arts and Science (FAS) have received funding from the Mitacs Research Training award, FAS, and Queen’s. Mitacs provided half of the funding for the $6,000 award while FAS and the Office of the Provost and Vice-Principal (Academic) provided the other half.

This number represents about 80 per cent of the funding received by the university from Mitacs.

Open for registrations now, Arts and Science has launched 7 new certificates that are open to Queen's students this fall. Certificates help students add breadth to their degree so their resumes are more competitive upon graduation. All of the new certificates range from 12-18 units, what some call a 'snackable' credential.  These new certificates include:
