Livable City Year

LCY-students

Livable City Year: One year. One city. Dozens of UW faculty and hundreds of students. Working together to catalyze livability

The University of Washington’s Livable City Year program (LCY) is an initiative enabling local governments to tap into the talents and energy of the UW in order to accomplish critical projects. LCY links UW students and faculty with a Washington city or other regional government for an entire academic year, partnering to address the city’s sustainability and livability goals by engaging students and classes across the university.

LCY helps cities reach their goals for livability in an affordable way while providing opportunities for students to learn through real-life problem solving.
