The UP School of Urban and Regional Planning is a graduate school based at the University of the Philippines Diliman specializing in fields such as urban and regional planning, environmental planning, transportation planning, housing and estate planning. It is formerly affiliated with the then UP Institute of Public Administration.
Since June 2000, the U.P. School of Urban and Regional Planning has been offering the Diploma, Master of Arts (M.A.) and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D) programs following the ladder structure. Courses taken in the lower degree (e.g. Diploma) are credited in the next higher degree (e.g. M.A.). The School also offers Diploma and M.A. Programs in Transportation Planning.
SURP also offers the M.S. in Regional Development Planning as a joint offering of SURP and the University of Dortmund in Germany. This two-year program is aimed at regional and district development planning, with emphasis on rural areas. The first year of the program is spent at the University of Dortmund, and the succeeding year at the U.P. SURP.
The School actively engages in research, either independently or in cooperation with government and private institutions.
The School is very active in training and extension work, maintaining a working relationship with several government inter-agency planning committees. Much of its training and extension work helps improve the quality of planning at the national and local government levels.
The School is headed by Dean Candido A. Cabrido, Jr. who exercises general supervision and control. He is assisted by the College Secretary, Dr. Mario R. Delos Reyes, who takes charge of administrative matters related to the academic personnel and the Administrative Officer, Mrs. Minerva B. Vergel de Dios, who takes charge of administrative matters relating to non-academic personnel. There are also three directors who help in policy formulation and program development, namely: Dr. Marideth R. Bravo, Director of Graduate Studies; Dr. David Leonides T. Yap, Director of Research and Publications; and Prof. Jose Edgardo A. Gomez, Jr., Director of Training.
At present, the School has fifteen (15) full-time faculty members, seven (7) lecturers, five (5) research and extension personnel, and ten (10) administrative staff.
