The Sage Project at SDSU


About Sage

The Sage Project is a partnership between San Diego State University and a local government in the San Diego region. Students, through their course work, engage in meaningful real-world projects and contribute to pressing social needs in a community in SDSU’s service area. Students from across the University assist local governments with partner-directed projects that address their livability and sustainability goals.

SDSU students and faculty connect with high-priority, high-need community projects, thereby generating interest and fresh ideas that create momentum and provide real service to the community.

The Sage Project is part of the Educational Partnerships for Innovation in Communities (EPIC-N) Network and engages hundreds of students each year who invest thousands of hours assisting communities in our region as they seek to build a more equitable and sustainable future.
