Nursing student brings fresh perspective to UW-Madison
This week is Habitat III Conference, a global summit on housing and sustainable urban development. UniverCity Alliance will be providing updates on the event, celebrating the work of our #Habitat3 partners from Mexico, Ecuador and Ethiopia, as well as the work of University of Wisconsin-Madison faculty member Shawn Kelly.

The city of Monona will serve as the pilot location for the “UniverCity” initiative, in which faculty, staff and students from UW-Madison will work with the city on projects in areas such as parks and recreation, transportation, housing and economic development.
The UniverCity Alliance launched a partnership with the city of Monona Wednesday at the Aldo Leopold Nature Center to engage students in the city’s developmental projects.
