Opportunities for communities to work with UW to address COVID-19

In recognition of the intense needs of local governments around COVID-19 response and recovery, the LCY program has compiled a list of existing UW courses whose faculty and students are seeking to assist local communities in COVID-related projects. Most projects can start in Autumn 2020 — some as early as Summer 2020. The list of projects is sorted by UW college, department, and faculty. If any of these projects resonate with your community’s needs, please contact the Livable City Year program so that we may connect you with the faculty for further discussion.

This list is meant to stimulate thinking by local governments regarding how they could leverage the skills, passion, and energy of UW students and faculty to address COVID-related challenges in their communities. It shows the ability of the UW to address a broad range of local needs. If you work for a city, county, tribe, or state agency and have a project need that is not listed, please contact the Livable City Year program so that we may explore matching your project to an existing course, independent study, or capstone/practicum project on one of our three campuses, starting as early as Summer 2020.
