The School of Architecture and Urban Planning opened for instruction in 1966 in response
to the rapid urbanization of Southern California and the growing need in the region for
architects and planners. The two-year master's program emphasized design-oriented studio
work based strongly on the social and technological sciences. George A. Dudley was
appointed the first dean of the school in 1964, almost two years prior to the arrival of
the first students.
The Dean's Council of the Graduate School of Architecture and Urban Planning is a support
organization comprised of school alumni and professionals in the region. Activities
include sponsorship of a visiting lecturer series and fund-raising for the school.
