"Hamiltunes" is performed in Nashville, Indiana, and will soon be in Huntingburg and Salem as part of the IU Center for Rural Engagement's rural arts series.

In addition to arts events, the IU School of Public and Environmental Affairs Master of Arts Administration students and faculty have launched capstone and site-specific practicum projects addressing key strategic planning needs for each partnering community.

The IU Center for Rural Engagement improves the lives of Hoosiers through collaborative initiatives that discover and deploy scalable and flexible solutions to common challenges facing rural communities. Working in full-spectrum community innovation through research, community-engaged teaching and student service, the center builds vision, harnesses assets and cultivates sustainable leadership structures within the communities with which it engages to ensure long-term success.
