How does a local government partnership with UniverCity Alliance (UCA) work?
- First, UCA matches the local government’s top priorities with courses taught by UW-Madison faculty
- Second, students in these courses work on the issues and questions over the course of the school year
- Lastly, the local government partner receives research, reports, designs, solutions and new ideas – and help in implementing them
Listen to this Local Gov Matters podcast where Mayor Mary O’Connor discusses the City of Monona’s UniverCity Year and how the topics of parks and recreation and sustainability were addressed.
