History

Since its creation in 1995, the University of Minnesota, Morris Center for Small Towns has been a community outreach program that serves as a point of entry to resources throughout the University of Minnesota. Small towns, local units of government, K-12 schools, non-profit organizations, and other University units have utilized CST’s resources when working on rural issues or making contributions to rural society.

Over the past two decades, CST has assisted a multitude of rural communities and has involved over 650 students and faculty in actively assisting and providing resources for small communities. Today, the Center for Small Towns still believes in a bright future for small towns and is marshaling University resources to help achieve that goal.
