FR10.30.11 Municipal-University Partnerships for Sustainable Communities- Lessons From the Sage Project at San Diego State University

The Sage Project is a partnership between San Diego State University (SDSU) and a local government in the San Diego region. Students, through their course work, engage in meaningful real-world projects by assisting local governments with partner-directed projects that address their livability and sustainability goals. By connecting with high-priority, high-need community projects, SDSU students and faculty generate interest and fresh ideas that create momentum and provide real service to the community. The Sage Project is part of the Educational Partnerships for Innovation in Communities (EPIC) Network, and is based on the highly successful and award winning Sustainable City Year Program at the University of Oregon. Like the project in Oregon, the Sage Project at SDSU engages hundreds of students each year who invest thousands of hours assisting communities in the region. During this colloquium, the Director of the Sage project will discuss the origins of the Sage project and the model advanced at several universities nationwide through the EPIC network. Three faculty from the SDSU School of Public Affairs will discuss the applied projects their students engaged in in the City of National City, the region highest density and lowest per-capital income city on the U.S. side of the border. Finally, the Director of Economic Development for the City of National City will discuss the impact this partnership has had on the City, and if and how the City has integrated student recommendations and findings.
