Community, Regional & International Development

Recent emphases include the consequences of economic restructuring, rural revitalization, policy design and analysis, and the linkages between sustainable development strategies and land use.

We examine the interconnected processes of social and economic development in US and international settings. We also translate what we learn to enhance the well-being of individuals, families and communities, particularly in small towns and rural regions in diverse geographic contexts.
