More Info

When students come to Indiana University, they expect a world-class education that will prepare them for their future. When they join our rural partnerships, they gain critical insights and experience—and help solve real problems—right here in Indiana.

The Center for Rural Engagement at IU Bloomington works in full-spectrum community innovation through research, community-engaged teaching and student service, building vision, harnessing assets and cultivating sustainable leadership structures within the communities with which it engages to ensure long-term success.

Involvement in programs like our award-wining, community-engaged teaching initiative, Sustaining Hoosier Communities, is just one example of how your unrestricted gift to the Center can help us connect hundreds of students with rural leaders and residents each year to develop and launch projects addressing health, community resilience, and quality of place.

These experiences are an important step toward retaining IU’s graduates in professional roles in the Hoosier state. By introducing students to rural communities and facilitating meaningful partnerships that build upon the natural beauty of rural Indiana, the family-friendly culture, and the many economic and cultural resources, we are strengthening thriving communities and showing our students that there are opportunities for them in Indiana.

Working with the IU Center for Rural Engagement, it has opened my eyes and made me realize that the rural community does need more doctors, nurses, social workers, to work with them. It's made a positive impact.” - Emma Sullivan, a nursing student in the Sustaining Hoosier Communities Orange County program

Together, we can create a stronger Indiana. Join us by making a gift to the Center for Rural Engagement that helps Hoosiers thrive.
