Smart Communities Initiative


SCI is founded upon the idea that universities and communities should work together to improve the health and vitality of their areas. Through the leveraging of interdisciplinary research and scholarship, community dialogue, human capacity, and innovation, municipal and university partners will collaborate toward the pursuit of smarter, more vibrant communities.

The SCI is excited to be partnering with Lenoir City for our 2016-17 program. Find out more here!
