Ryerson Planning Alumni Association Blog
In June 2021, following the University’s decision to change the institution’s name, our alumni association voted
to be known as the X University Planning Alumni Association while we awaited updates on the university’s re-naming process.
Now that the university has announced its new name, the association has chosen a new name: The School of Urban and Regional Planning Alumni or SURPA.
While are name has changed from RPAA to XPAA and now SURPA, our mission remains the same: To support undergraduate and graduate students of TMU’s School of Urban and Regional Planning (SURP), provide alumni with meaningful opportunities for engagement, and promote and advance the planning profession.
We have updated our social media handles and you can reach us both on Twitter and Instagram @ SURPA_TMU.
