How we can help

CST frequently works with UMM and other University of Minnesota faculty to develop and execute research projects on issues relevant to small towns and rural areas. The Center's support for these projects takes various forms, from connecting a faculty member with a network of stakeholders in the region, to providing the faculty member with student research assistance or survey capacity, to offering direct faculty research grants for select projects. The Director welcomes inquiries from fellow faculty members, and is eager to start the conversation about how they might engage in community-based research, with CST's encouragement.
