About Us

The School of Planning, Design and Construction (SPDC) is a part of the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources (CANR) at Michigan State University. It consists of four separately accredited programs: Construction Management, Interior Design, Landscape Architecture and Urban & Regional Planning (which is part of the MSU College of Social Science). Under the leadership of interim director Dr. Scott Loveridge, faculty and staff work daily to provide a quality educational experience for students in these fields, encouraging the creativity and innovation that drive these industries.
