The Center for Small Towns focuses on connecting small communities with the resources of the larger University system and providing students with hands-on experience. Students gain practical workplace experiences in a variety of areas and across disciplines. Student projects vary depending on community needs such as assisting with sustainability issues for rural communities, analyzing and creating surveys, researching rural issues, working with community leaders, and much more. Past and current students have appreciated the opportunity to serve the greater community while gathering valuable resume building experience and gaining marketable skills.
