MAPP's 50th Anniversary Celebration

August 1, 2017 - 1:00 AM to June 30, 2018 - 11:45 PM
University of Maryland

This year marks the 50th anniversary of our school’s beginnings at the University of Maryland. What started as a home for would-be architects has morphed over the years to include planners, preservationists, real estate developers, educators, artists, leaders and even a mayor. From our start as the School of Architecture, we grew to become the School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation. We are immensely proud of the achievements of our alumni, so this anniversary is as much about your accomplishments and path as it is about ours.


We are planning a number of events and lectures throughout the 2017-2018 school year.

Please check back regularly for updates!
