On Wednesday, April 26th, University City District held our annual State of University City event. We were joined by key partners and stakeholders for a celebration of 25 years of University City District as we released our new State of University City 2023 publication. UCD president Matt Bergheiser mapped out key development and innovation stories from the past three years, while acknowledging the contributions of University City District over the last 25 years. 


Now that our event is complete, we're pleased to share an electronic version of The State of University City 2023. The State of University City 2023 documents the district’s status as a regional leader in innovation and development, and provides an in-depth guide to 50 development projects – academic, commercial, public space, residential and more – that continue to transform University City, along with other economic development indicators. To obtain physical copies, please stop by our office at 3940 Chestnut Street or email us at [email protected].


At our event, we screened a video highlighting five UCD staff members who contribute each day to our mission of changing places and changing lives. You can view and share that video by clicking below.



We also screened a video highlighting innovators from around our neighborhood who are driving forward the future of University City. Click below to meet seven local founders, inventors, and business leaders paving the way for the next 25 years.



University City and its institutions, innovators, and community members are ready to be bold, optimistic, and relentless about the opportunities in front of us and future challenges. Together, we can shape a broadly inclusive prosperity.
