Students who enter our programs arrive at Hunter Urban Policy & Planning from any number of different locations and disciplines. It is not uncommon to attend classes with working professionals, recent graduates, or career changers. The diverse voices within the student body enrich discussions in the classrooms while exposing students to a variety of perspectives on urban issues.

Once graduated, alumni of our programs are lifetime members of the Hunter Urban community. We value their support and participation in the ongoing life of our department. Below you will find a small sampling of where our alumni go following the completion of a Hunter Urban Policy & Planning program. Beyond this list there are hundreds of Hunter Urban Alumni working to improve the quality of life in cities for residents. The list of MUP alumni is here.
