Faculty Research

Faculty Research

Our faculty members provide students with the tools they need to thrive after graduation because of their own passion for planning, GIS, and design research.

Research informs teaching and brings the real-world impact of our faculty and students to classroom discussions and student assignments. 

The School's faculty have expertise in economic development, land use planning, environmental and health planning, urban design, housing and community development, transportation planning, geographic information systems, and urban analytics. They've worked with non-profit, governmental, and for-profit agencies and organizations around Atlanta, other cities in the US, and internationally. 

If you would like to get involved in a research project, please talk to one of the program directors, the research center or research lab directors, or to the chair.
