We’re actively engaging the talent and commitment of community partners in all areas of society, such as government, health care, education, nonprofits, and private organizations, and others.
Together, in collaboration with university faculty, students, and staff, we are accomplishing a wide range of community goals across rural Indiana.
Sustaining Hoosier Communities
The Center for Rural Engagement selects a new community in the Indiana Uplands each year to be the partner for Sustaining Hoosier Communities. A request for proposals is released and closed in the fall.
Coordinating committees bring together community members—such as public employees, elected officials, non-profit professionals, business owners, and residents—to drive the application process and share in the collaborative experience between the community and IU.
