Who we are In 1997, a group of rural Minnesota advocates came together to create a rural policy “think tank” that would provide policy makers, rural advocates and concerned citizens with an objective, unbiased and politically “unspun” examination of contemporary rural issues.  Based in St. Peter, Minn.  Non-partisan, non-profit policy research organization  Dedicated to providing Minnesota’s policy makers with an unbiased evaluation of issues from a rural perspective.  The Center is recognized as a leading resource for rural policy research and development.Center for Rural Policy & Development, 2013
  3. 3. A State of Diverse Regions   Ruralplexes: Regions based on common characteristics.
