Sustainable Year City Program
The City of Silverton welcomed University of Oregon students during the 2019-2020 year as part of the Sustainable City Year Program (SCYP). SCYP, part of the Sustainable Cities Institute at UO, matches professors and classes with an Oregon city, county, special district, tribe, transit agency, or partnership of governments for an entire academic year. Students working in Silverton, guided by their professors, combined research and fieldwork to address City needs and achieve course learning goals.
