Urban and Regional Studies develops individuals who want to make a difference in their community: a difference in what happens to older neighborhoods in transition; a difference in what happens as new suburban communities are planned and built; and a difference in the lives and well-being of persons across metropolitan and rural regions. UW-Green Bay offers undergraduates an opportunity to become familiar with concepts that will be useful whether they become community organizers, lawyers, city or regional planners, architects, and more.
