Since its inception over 50 years ago, the City and Regional Planning Program (CRP) at Pratt Institute has remained dedicated to an education that emphasizes participatory planning over top-down policy making, and advocacy over technocracy.


The mission of the Graduate Center for Planning and the Environment at Pratt Institute is to provide a professionally- oriented education to a student body with diverse cultural, educational, and professional backgrounds. 

Using a multidisciplinary approach, City and Regional Planning teaches participatory practice as the best way to support and advocate for just, equitable communities. Students graduate equipped with the knowledge of theory, technical capacity, collaborative skills, and radical critical thinking abilities necessary to plan for ethical, healthy, resilient and inclusive communities.
