Urban@UW was a founding partner supporting Livable City Year (LCY), an initiative designed to connect one city to faculty and courses at the University of Washington over one academic year in order to address city-identified issues of livability and sustainability. An opt-in program launched by UW faculty Branden Born (Department of Urban Design and Planning) and Jen Otten (School of Public Health), LCY provides the infrastructure and capacity to connect city needs with faculty course goals, fostering invaluable experience for students as they work within city parameters, meet with municipal agencies, and present and deliver innovative results for city use.
