UniverCity Year Better places togetherThe Nelson Institute is a proud partner of the University of Wisconsin–Madison program UniverCity Year, which will be expanding its impact across the state by partnering with several communities including the City of Stoughton, the Town of Germantown, and Columbia, Outagamie, and Polk County. Additionally, UniverCity Year will be a part of a special partnership between the City of Sun Prairie, the Towns of Deerfield and Cottage Grove, and the Friends of Koshkonong Creek to study and recommend upgrades to the creek.

Launched in 2016 with the Wisconsin Idea in mind, this three-year program facilitates engagement between the UW–Madison learning community and localities, ultimately bringing faculty, students, and community members together to address some of the greatest challenges facing Wisconsin’s local governments. UniverCity Year has engaged with thousands of students and faculty members on hundreds of projects in counties, towns, villages, and cities across Wisconsin.
