1859 magazine features SCYP program

The magazine 1859 features the University of Oregon’s SCYP program in the magazine’s July|August 2015 issue. Writer Felisa Rogers explains how SCYP got its start and notes its many successes in its six-year tenure. “What sets SCYP apart is the scope and cohesiveness of the project,” she writes in the six-page feature story. SCYP—which partners UO students with an Oregon municipality needing assistance reaching sustainability project goals—not only helps both cities and students move projects forward, but it also has boosted city employees’ enthusiasm for their jobs, Rogers notes. “It reminds a lot of us why we’re in the jobs we’re in,” Rogers quotes a city staff member from Springfield. “We saw a lot of people get reinvigorated on projects that had been sitting on the shelf for a while.” 1859 is on store shelves now.
