For the 2016-2017 academic year, the City of Monona partnered with the University of Wisconsin-Madison on its first ever UniverCity Year in which cross-disciplinary teams from UW-Madison courses tackled city-initiated projects. The initiative resulted in over 30 written reports on four different topic areas: Housing, Transportation, Parks & Recreation and Community Media. Copies of all final reports on these topics, a summary report, and year-end wrap-up presentation can be reviewed on the University's website at: https://univercity.wisc.edu/monona/. Scroll to the bottom of the page to find linked projects. You may download the project by using the second link in the line item for each project. Enjoy!
The UniverCity Year is a year long partnership modeled after Oregon's Sustainable City Year Program. The UniverCity Alliance aims to connect education, service and research on campus with cities to further the practice of sustainability. The Alliance convenes representatives from UW-Madison's COWS, Global Health Institute, Institute for Research on Poverty, Morgridge Center for Public Service, Nelson Institute for Environmental Studies, Department of Urban and Regional Planning, and UW-Extension.
