Dr Joe Hurley has a strong passion for cities and urban communities and carries this passion into his teaching and research.
Program Manager for the Bachelor of Urban and Regional Planning (Honours), RMIT University
“RMIT University has its primary campus at the heart of my favourite city, Melbourne. I work at RMIT, as it is uniquely placed to engage in urban issues both locally and globally, and is a world leader in urban research. My research focuses on questions of urban sustainability and on the role of urban planning and governance processes to deliver better outcomes for urban communities.
“My students in the Bachelor of Urban and Regional Planning share this passion, developing the knowledge and skills to tackle complex problems and deliver meaningful solutions that create more liveable, equitable and sustainable urban environments.”
