1969 was a remarkable year for American art, culture and technology.

Woodstock rocked. PBS took to the airwaves. Armstrong & Aldrin walked the moon. The School of Architecture & Urban Planning took root at a young public university in Milwaukee.

Join the School of Architecture & Urban Planning at UW-Milwaukee as we celebrate a landmark anniversary. Our architecture program turns 50; Urban Planning turns 45. This yearlong celebration kicks off this September and concludes with a gala weekend, April 16-18, 2020.

You helped build the School of Architecture & Urban Planning into an institution that is innovating and reshaping southeastern Wisconsin. Please help us celebrate this legacy as we look toward SARUP’s next 50 years.
