Have you ever wondered how changes in your neighborhood happen? It’s possible that some of these changes are related to PSU student work. Students in the Nohad A. Toulan School of Urban Studies and Planning Master of Urban and Regional Planning (MURP) program all complete client-focused community-based planning projects in their culminating course, the MURP Workshop. Many of these projects have won state and national awards for the quality and creative problem-solving evident in the work.
The PSU Library has just received a collection of MURP Workshop Projects and made them available in PDXScholar, the library’s digital repository. These projects are an excellent example of how PSU and the library engage with PSU's motto: Let knowledge serve the city. Over time these project documents will show how our area has grown and changed, and how PSU students have been a part of that.
