UniverCity Year

Website |univercity.wisc.edu

UniverCity Year is a three-phase partnership between UW-Madison and one community in Wisconsin.

The concept is simple. The community partner identifies projects that would benefit from UW-Madison expertise. Faculty from across the university incorporate these projects into their courses, and UniverCity Year staff provide administrative support to ensure the collaboration’s success.

The results are powerful. Partners receive big ideas and feasible recommendations that spark momentum towards a more sustainable, livable, and resilient future.

The community partner identifies sustainability and livability projects that would benefit from UW-Madison expertise. Faculty from across the university incorporate these projects into their courses with graduate students and upper-level undergraduate students. UniverCity Year staff members provide administrative support to help keep the collaboration running efficiently and effectively.

In phase one, the community partner identifies projects that would benefit from UW-Madison expertise, and UniverCity Year staff match projects with faculty across the university. In phase two, faculty incorporate these projects into their courses with graduate students and upper-level undergraduate students. During phase three, UniverCity Year staff provide project implementation support. Throughout the partnership, UniverCity Year staff provide administrative support to help keep the collaboration running efficiently and effectively.
