Tennessee Tech launched its Rural Reimagined Grand Challenge in spring 2019, and already it has seen more than 1,000 service interactions among students, faculty members, and the community. Students have been involved in more than 50 rural projects that have sought to build economic development in the region and provide resiliency for people living in distressed counties, while more than 15 academic courses have already incorporated the challenge into coursework, ranging from freshman first-year courses to senior capstones. The Spring semester will see the Grand Challenge become even bigger, so watch Tech times for more success stories, accomplishments, and announcements! If you are currently working on rural initiatives in your courses, research, or through volunteering please reach out to us with your ideas! Contact Kinsey Potter at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are excited to partner with you.
