The Resilient Communities Project (RCP). The City was selected as the RCP partner community for the 2013-2014 University of Minnesota academic year. This partnership brought the expertise of hundreds of graduate students and the University to sustainability-related projects which were identified by the City of North St. Paul.
A total of 20 projects were completed by university students addressing a wide range of sustainability, livability, efficiency, and quality of life issues. Combined, thousands of hours of student, faculty, City staff, and local stakeholders were directed toward bringing imagination and innovative perspective to these issues.
RCP is an initiative of the Sustainability Faculty Network (SFN) at the University of Minnesota, with funding and administrative support provided by the Center for Urban and Regional Affairs (CURA) and the Institute on the Environment (IonE). To learn more, visit the SFN website.
