Scientists and scholars are invited to join Project Cities and the City of Peoria to co-develop class projects for the 2021-2022 academic year. Peoria staff from 9 departments will join for a virtual workshop to develop proposed project scopes and discuss new ideas, with the aim of matching you and your students to a real project with real impacts. The program is designed to support most class formats and work across disciplines. Project Cities is currently recruiting faculty to support the upcoming program cycle. Get in on the opportunity to meet our community partners early and secure an applied project for your students. This will be a virtual event with the freedom to move between round-table breakouts with city department staff, to discuss collaboration opportunities and learn more about their proposed projects. Register for the virtual event, scheduled for June 24, 2021, from 1:30 – 3:30 p.m. Project Cities is an innovative university-community partnership program, based on the international EPIC-N model. The program connects students and faculty to applied projects that advance a local community’s sustainability goals, guided by the SDGs. This effort leverages the research and discovery already taking place at the university to advance local efforts, making a win-win partnership with real-world impact.
