UPSA welcomes all new and continuing students to Wagner. This year promises to be filled with many great events, lectures, and memories.
The Urban Planning Student Association (UPSA) is a student-run organization whose mission is to help students develop a deeper appreciation and understanding of various planning issues. We provide quality lectures and programming which reflect the interests of students while introducing them to new ideas about urbanism.
