McKinstry breaks ground on Gonzaga, UW medical education and innovation center in U-District

A group of Spokane leaders had a vision more than 30 years ago to transform what was once a desolate railyard into an innovation district where private companies, education and health care intersect to create economic opportunity.

That vision continues to come to life as the 770-acre University District is now home to six universities, Avista Development’s and McKinstry’s Catalyst Building, and two medical schools – Washington State University’s Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine and the University of Washington-Gonzaga University Regional Health Partnership, which is expanding health care education through a new building that broke ground Thursday via a virtual ceremony.

Seattle-based McKinstry and Gonzaga are developing the 90,000-square-foot structure at 840 E. Spokane Falls Blvd., which will house UW’s School of Medicine in Spokane and Gonzaga’s Department of Human Physiology, in addition to undergraduate courses in nursing and health sciences. The UW School of Medicine is currently in

Driving Migrant Inclusion through Social Innovation: Lessons for Cities in a Pandemic – World

By Liam Patuzzi

The rapid arrival of millions of asylum seekers and migrants in Europe in 2015–16 forced cities both large and small to rethink their approach to immigrant inclusion. Many localities, recognizing the newcomers’ diverse backgrounds and at times complex needs, began to experiment with innovative models of service provision, including by working with nongovernmental actors and involving community members more directly in the design and implementation of projects.

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced European cities to confront a whole new set of challenges. Among them, how to support residents—including refugees and other migrants—amid social-distancing orders, all while public services operate at reduced capacity and in the face of likely budget cuts.
