Mission and Members

The MURP Alumni Association’s mission is to further the enduring educational interests, social diversity, professional development, and charitable support of CU Denver MURP students, alumni, and the communities they serve. MURPAA will encourage participation in the affairs of the College of Architecture and Planning, the University of Colorado Denver, the greater Denver Metropolitan Area, and the Intermountain West.

The CU Denver Master of Urban and Regional Planning Alumni Association was established in 2014 and works closely with CU Denver’s Alumni Relations. Our MURPAA board meetings are held monthly and we hold a general meeting for all MURP alumni annually. Additionally, we help organize special events in coordination with the CU Denver student chapter of the American Planning Association (APAS) and Colorado APA’s Emerging Planning Professionals (EPP) group.

Our board members are involved in transportation, housing, and many other aspects of local and regional planning, and are members of private planning firms, public planning agencies, and non-profit organizations. All of them have dedicated themselves to furthering the success of alumni and students through this alumni association and the powerful connections individuals and organizations can provide through mentorship, professional support, and scholarship funding.
