The mission of the College of Urban and Public Affairs is to assist in the development of healthy communities through an interdisciplinary program of teaching, research, and public service. Faculty and students engage the intellectual, policy, and practice aspects of urban studies and planning from the local to the international levels. They actively participate in the analysis, development, and dissemination of the innovations for which Portland and the Pacific Northwest are known. Through participation in classes and seminars, and supervised research and teaching activities, PhD students are prepared for careers in higher education and in other research organizations.
