Livable City Year

Abstract

The model for this type of university-community partnership is a potential solution to a long existing gap between knowledge and practice. Historically, this gap has been perpetuated by the unwillingness of universities to make both intellectual and financial investments in their surrounding communities. The purpose of this project is to both guide an understanding of how Livable City Year seeks to address this disparity and to promote the impact of the program on both the university community and the City of Auburn, UW’s community partner for the 2016-2017 academic year. This is done through the creation of a short video that aims to tell the story of LCY’s inaugural year in a way that will influence students, faculty, and community partners to engage with the program in years to come.
