MAPS (Morgan Association of Planning Students) is a graduate student-led organization for Morgan State University’s School of Architecture and Planning (SAP). An American Planning Association (APA)-registered Planning Student Organization (PSO), our graduate student membership works closely with City and Regional Planning (CREP) faculty and staff each program year to serve the Morgan State University community with enthusiasm and motivation.
As an APA-registered Planning Student Organization (PSO), MAPS members benefit from having access to APA’s Early Career Membership Program, membership in APA’s Maryland chapter, and opportunities to network and interact with experienced planners close to campus. Students also have the opportunity to foster relationships among planning students on campus and throughout the state.
The APA says it best: proper planning adds value to communities and helps them find the right balance of new development and essential services, environmental protection, and that which will bring innovative change. MAPS recognizes this need and our student members are an active voice in the field of City and Regional Planning in Baltimore, Maryland.
