Local/National Partnerships

Our outreach and partnerships make the boundaries between the university and the city more open. We are a place for inspired, thoughtful, rigorous and meaningful engagement on a wide range of urban issues.

The School of Cities leverages and amplifies the university’s strengths in urban talent, knowledge, ideas and networks. We advance the role of the university as a city-builder by developing collaborative partnerships and programs with governments, industry, non-profits and community organizations.

In addition, the School of Cities supports opportunities to engage in meaningful conversations about the future of urban life. 

Public events are held throughout the year including book launches, debates, film screenings, keynote speakers and panel discussions, engaging educators, institutions, practitioners and the public in how we can make our cities more sustainable, prosperous, inclusive and just.
