Dr. Bryan Dorsey
Bryan Dorsey, Ph.D. and M.A., is a professor of geography who serves as the WSU Urban and Regional Planning program coordinator. The land use planning program benefits from a partnership with Ogden City's Community Development and Planning Department. Bryan has engaged his land use planning students in urban and city planning projects for local communities since 1998. Projects have ranged from pathways to transit planning and full general city plans for municipalities such as Marriott-Slaterville, Sunset, and Washington Terrace. Other projects involve open space preservation in Plain City, North Ogden, and Morgan and Weber Counties. Bryan’s students have received excellent learning and career development opportunities in addition to those that emerge from devoting their creative energy to long-term community decision making.
Bryan has been a leader in two of WSU’s undergraduate education movements: service-learning scholarship as a pedagogy and as a practical, citizenship-building enterprise; and environmental issues awareness to promote such needs as energy and water conservation, air quality improvements and ecosystem preservation.
