As communities continue to evolve through development and population growth, instead of reacting to these changes, communities are choosing to control their own fate through planning. That’s where you come in. As an urban planner, you can help communities chart their future growth by helping them prepare socioeconomic and physical design plans.

Celebrating the College of Architecture and Planning during the Centennial

Graduates of Ball State’s College of Architecture and Planning (CAP) have changed the face of Indiana. They work in nearly every major firm in the state, and they make an impact in communities throughout the U.S. and the world. These accomplishments reflect our enduring values—excellence, innovation, courage, integrity, inclusiveness, social responsibility, and gratitude—which have guided us throughout our proud 100-year history and will lead us in our bright future.
