Cities and communities need of support and technical assistance in completing projects, but are often hard-pressed for time, staff, or budget. EPIC programs enable places to tap into the talents and energy of college students and faculty in order to accomplish critical projects. This working relationship between cities and higher ed institutions puts student talent to work in order to strengthen communities.

— Bob Miller, Mayor of the City of Monona, WI
