Looking Back, Moving Forward
Since its founding in 1967, graduates of the School have been assembling an impressive list of accomplishments. The alumni chapter of the School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation is active in sponsoring numerous career related, academic and social activities. The network of Maryland graduates constitutes an ever-expanding group of practitioners and scholars.
MAPP+D Alumni Network
Now is the time to get involved with the University of Maryland Alumni Association and, in particular, the MAPP+D Alumni Network. It is a great way to feel connected to the school and give back to the university that played such an important role in your life. There are many opportunities to make a difference for the alumni and students of the School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation.
As an alumnus, you can reconnect in a variety of ways; by being a mentor for a student; returning as a visiting critic on a review; serving as an officer for our Alumni Network or as a guest speaker, to name a few. If you would like to help out in any way, please send a note to Erica Anderson, Assistant Director of External Relations and Stewardship, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our graduates are practicing all over the world and in all different sectors of their chosen professions. The school's annual Architecture, Planning, Preservation and Real Estate Development Career and Internship Fair takes place in the spring and connects alumni from firms and companies all over the East Coast with current students and young alumni. If you would like more information on representing your firm at the career fair or attending the career fair, please contact the MAPP Career Services Office.
