Planning the future, OU Regional & City Planning
The University of Oklahoma Division of Regional and City Planning faculty prepare students to address the challenges that face the cities, towns and rural areas in Oklahoma and nationally.
The OU RCPL program, founded in 1947, is one of the oldest programs west of the Mississippi River. Like other divisions within the OU College of Architecture, students also have access to a multidisciplinary learning environment and with a low student-faculty ratio, students work closely with faculty to gain insight from their experience. This focus on communication and experience better prepares graduates for the collaborative work of successful city planning professionals.
Congratulations Dr. Guoqiang Shen!
Dr. Guoqiang Shen through his research - both in terms of funding and publications - and his contributions to Regional & City Planning and the College of Architecture has received promotion to full professor.
The RCPL family is thrilled about this important milestone for Dr. Shen!
