Livable City Year

Faculty involvement

UW Livable City Year is looking for faculty interested in tackling real-world livability challenges

Livable City Year (LCY) connects UW courses with local communities to address real-world challenges around livability and sustainability. The program has partnered with the City of Tacoma for the 2017-2018 Livable City Year, working on a diverse array of projects identified by the city related to livability and sustainability. Faculty who are interested in working on a project as part of a course are encouraged to fill out the form below. If you have any questions or would like to discuss the program with the UW LCY team, email

The specific project list is developed through discussions with the City of Tacoma and will be updated throughout the year as projects are identified. The UW LCY program will work with Tacoma to find appropriate faculty and course matches for those projects.

Do you have a course that might lend itself to highly supported, project-based community engagement and student learning in 2017-2018? Please let us know in the form below, and we will contact you with more information, as well as more information on potential projects. This is an expression of interest, and does not commit you to participate.
