UniverCity Alliance: Providing resources and saving money for Monona

The City of Monona is not unlike a lot of small cities in Wisconsin — motivated by an ambitious vision, but constrained by limited resources. Enter “UniverCity Year,” a UW–Madison project that offers the services of students in disciplines ranging from civil engineering to art, to expand a community’s capacity to plan for bigger things. Says Mayor Bob Miller, “We’re tackling some projects that we’ve only dreamed of someday approaching.”

The Global Health Institute is among the core partners of the UniverCity Alliance, which organized the UniverCity Year program.
