The Graduate School of Planning (GSP) provides access to high quality academic resources in a central location.

The Graduate School of Planning, located in the University of Puerto Rico, Río Piedras Campus, was established by Certification # 70 of the Puerto Rico Higher Education Council of April 30, 1965. It is the only program in Puerto Rico that offers a program of study leading to a Master in Planning, with a specialization in four areas: Urban and Territorial, Society and Environment and in Economic Development and Community.

In 1978, the program was recognized, and in 1988, accredited by the Planning Accreditation Board of the American Institute of Certified Planners and the Association of Collegiate Schools of Planning. Our accreditation has been extended ever since, and is currently valid until our next re-accreditation visit in 2023. We are also affiliated with the American Planning Association. Currently it is the only Puerto Rican graduate program in planning with a professional accreditation and affiliations with national organizations in the US and Latin America.
