Campanella Returns to Cornell
Thomas J. Campanella (M.L.A. '91) joined the Department of City and Regional Planning as an associate professor effective July 1. Campanella comes to Cornell after a decade at the University of North Carolina–Chapel Hill, where his subject area covered planning and landscape history, urban design, and the historical development of the built environment. After receiving his master's degree in landscape architecture at Cornell, Campanella earned a Ph.D. in urban planning at MIT.
