Community Development

Kansas rural communities are under constant economic pressures.  Just a few of the challenges are business retention and expansion, tourism development, in- and out- migration and diversification of income sources.  Community Extension faculty bring in university resources to help local communities address economic and development problems.  They work in tandem with local and K-State on a variety of issues including economic expansion, community vitality, and small business development.

A community's sustainability depends on its long-term ability to meet residents' needs. One of our goals at K-State Research and Extension is to provide technical assistance and evidence-based programs to citizens who want to make sure their communities survive and prosper.

K-State Research and Extension can play a key role in helping people create a vision across traditional geographical, sociological, and political boundaries. As Henry Ford said "Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success."
