The Iowa Initiative for Sustainable Communities (IISC) continues to build partnerships between the University of Iowa and Iowa communities.

Over the past two years, the IISC has worked with Dubuque on a series of sustainability projects. Now the IISC is working on three new projects in Muscatine and Dubuque. The IISC also has plans for other projects during the 2013-14 school year in Muscatine, Cedar Rapids, Cedar Falls and Washington.
