2012 Rural Futures Conference


Thank you to everyone who attended the Rural Futures Conference in Lincoln, NE on May 8-10. You were instrumental in providing insight and thought around discussions as the University contemplated the development of a Rural Futures Institute. We also hope that you developed a few strong relationships that you will utilize in the future to accomplish goals professionally and personally.

The Rural Futures Conference was a great place for the conversation to begin!The Rural Futures Institute is busily working on the competitive grant program, considerations for an executive director and University and non-University engagement. However, another Rural Futures Conference is in the near future. A date and location for the conference have not yet been announced but please check back towards the end of the year for more details.
