Project Cities connects higher education with local communities, creating a powerful combination of knowledge and know-how.
Project Cities is a university-community partnership. Through the program, sustainability faculty and students pair with a city to co-create strategies for better environmental, economic and social balance in the places we live. Students from multiple disciplines research challenging issues chosen by the city and propose innovative sustainability solutions that enable the city to make progress toward a better future.
Project Cities in Action
Project Cities connects ASU faculty and students with a city to co-create innovative strategies for better, more livable communities.
How Do Cities Get Involved?
Cities apply to become a Project Cities partner through an annual Request for Proposal (RFP) process. The RFP opens in the fall, but cities are encouraged to reach out to Project Cities staff early; we are happy to provide guidance and recommendations on crafting a strong proposal for your community.
Project Cities is a member of the Educational Partnerships for Innovation in Communities Network (EPIC-N), a national network of over 30 educational institutions partnering with cities throughout the United States and world.
