Mission: The center for rural strategies seeks to improve economic and social conditions for communities in the countryside and around the world through the creative and innovative use of media and communications. By presenting accurate and compelling portraits of rural lives and cultures, we hope to deepen public debate and create a national environment in which positive change for rural communities can occur.
Programs: Program services include helping communities and nonprofit organizations incorporate media and communications into their work in support of strategic goals. In addition, it includes the design and implementation of information campaigns that educate the public about the problems and opportunities that exist in contemporary rural communities.
