The partnership will bring the expertise of hundreds of graduate and professional students to sustainability-related projects identified by the county, the Carver County Community Development Agency, SouthWest Transit, Independent School District 112, and the cities of Victoria, Chaska, and Watertown.

Each academic year, RCP chooses a city or county partner through a competitive process that helps identify potential projects and matches them with university courses. The partnership provides the community with access to students from a wide range of programs and disciplines, including architecture, planning, engineering and environmental sciences.

Students who participate in the projects get real-world opportunities to apply their knowledge and training to address local issues.
