The MURP Alumni Association’s mission is to further the enduring educational interests, social diversity, professional development, and charitable support of CU Denver MURP students, alumni, and the communities they serve. MURPAA will encourage participation in the affairs of the College of Architecture and Planning, the University of Colorado Denver, the greater Denver Metropolitan Area, and the Intermountain West.


Our members are involved in many aspects of regional and local planning, including transportation, housing, and sustainability. They are employees of private planning firms, public planning agencies, and non-profit organizations. All of them have dedicated themselves to furthering the success of alumni and students through this alumni association, and the powerful connections individuals and organizations can provide through mentorship, professional support, and scholarship funding.

Membership is open to any University of Colorado (CU) Denver MURP graduate interested in supporting the mission of the Association. The Board of Directors may approve a special membership for non-graduates.


Our Bylaws lay out our mission, requirements for membership, governance structure, duties and responsibilities of board members, and other rules and policies for the organization. You can read our Bylaws here
