In partnership with community organizations and the strong academic schools at IU Bloomington, we’re working to develop a sense of regionalism through capacity, infrastructure, and leadership development programs.
Together we are building networks of leaders who can collaborate across county borders and collectively increase understanding of regional issues.
Harnessing a high-impact, community-engaged teaching model, we connect IU students with local leaders and organizations. This deepens our students' experiences and understanding of professional opportunities in rural communities. As a result, students envision rewarding careers in our state while contributing additional capacity to local efforts.
