Afternoon with Architects & Planners 2020
This a virtual event is scheduled for April 30, 2020. Please refer back to this page for scheduling and format updates.

Architecture & Urban Planning graduate students are closely connected to SARUP’s hometown, Milwaukee. It’s where many of our current students live. It’s where many of our alumni launched or lead design firms and planning agencies revitalizing the region today. It’s where our faculty engage in funded research projects and community partnerships to reconsider how urban communities will thrive as the 21st century advances. Also, Milwaukee is fun.

Every student finds a design niche in one the school’s studio spaces. Our robust speaker series and in-house gallery bring design experts to SARUP from around the region and world. Our Friday tradition, TEA + BIKKIES, is fun, informal and informative. We’re excited to welcome back 300+ alumni for our fiftieth anniversary weekend in April 2020.
