Our Initiatives

We focus on teaching and researching how to tackle the critical issues facing cities and regions today. For planners to take the lead in the city-building process, they need to understand the breadth of their field and how to work in interdisciplinary teams. We have organized our MURP program around three initiatives (Healthy Communities, Urban Revitalization, and Regional Sustainability) that represent issues at the forefront of the planning profession today and areas of aspiration and expertise for which Denver and Colorado are known.
