UofM Morris – Student Summer Worker

by Jackie S on May 19th, 2017

The UMVRDC is pleased to announce that our office will be working with a student from the University of Minnesota-Morris through the support provided by the Center for Small Towns (CST) and the Southwest Regional Sustainable Development Partnership (RSDPs). This student will be working closely with our Western Minnesota Prairie Waters program as well as the Get Rural project, both of which will include travelling throughout our region attending many of the great city events and festivals throughout the summer.  We look forward to the support on these projects this summer!

 

The Regional Sustainable Development Partnerships (RSDPs) give communities in Greater Minnesota access to the University of Minnesota in order to help solve problems and take advantage of new opportunities. As a part of University of Minnesota Extension, [Region] RSDP brings together local talent and resources with University of Minnesota knowledge and seed funding to drive sustainability in four areas: agriculture and food systems, tourism and resilient communities, natural resources, and clean energy.

 

CST is a community outreach program housed at the University of Minnesota, Morris and serves as a point-of-entry to the resources of the University of Minnesota. Small towns, local units of government, K–12 schools, non-profit organizations, and other University unit, are able to utilize CST’s resources as they work on rural issues or make contributions to rural society. CST’s mission is to focus the University’s attention and marshal its resources toward assisting Minnesota’s small towns with locally identified issues while creating applied learning opportunities for faculty and students.
