Universities are increasingly implementing programs to strengthen community and economic engagement. Such programs aim to appeal to a range of constituents, including urban, rural, and underrepresented populations. In this presentation, strategies and programs from three different states, Minnesota, Ohio and California, will be reviewed. The efforts will highlight specific challenges being addressed, as well as approaches that are connecting rural needs with urban university resources and improving job preparation and entrepreneurship of diverse and underrepresented student populations. The audience will be invited to participate in a discussion of additional ways universities can extend the reach and impact of economic development initiatives, especially to include currently underserved populations.
