Conference Overview:

The Carolina Center for Public Service, UNC Rural and other partners are hosting the Connect, Engage, Transform: Rural Community Partnerships conference on Friday, Jan. 24, 2020, at the UNC Friday Center for Continuing Education.

North Carolina is a predominantly rural state; 80 of 100 counties have a low enough population density to be considered rural. The state's many rural communities offer tremendous strengths and assets for North Carolina, though they frequently face challenges around key drivers of well-being such as education, food security, employment opportunities, environmental resilience, housing and transportation.

At the Connect, Engage, Transform: Rural Community Partnerships conference, rural community representatives and UNC-Chapel Hill faculty, staff and students will come together to listen, learn and think creatively, informed by the past and focused on the future. This conference will bring together stakeholders from North Carolina's rural communities and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill to highlight and encourage authentic, effective and sustainable collaborations for the public good.
