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 intersted 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, or email

The specific project list is still being finalized by the City of Tacoma. The UW LCY program will work with Tacoma to find appropriate faculty and course matches for those projects. As possible examples, see the projects undertaken during our inaugural Livable City Year with the City of Auburn. LCY is a member of the Educational Partners for Innovation in Communities Network, which provides a national model and framework for these partnerships.

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 the potential project list when available. This is an expression of interest, and does not commit you to participate.
