2021 A Virtual Rural Summit
2021 – the year we stayed home – has offered a unique opportunity for many of us to experience what it means to learn, work and grow from a single place. For the 2021 Rural College Access and Success Summit, we have decided to embrace this opportunity by holding it virtually. We are planning an event that will take advantage of digital technology’s capacity for connecting, sharing and inspiring each other.
We hope you will join us and use the opportunity to open a digital window on your community.
More details coming in November. Please follow us on social media to receive updates.
The event will be co-hosted by Partners for Education and Campus Compact New Hampshire.
To learn more about past Summits, please see the information below highlighting the 2018 and 2019 events.
CONVERSATIONS FOR ACTION
While Covid-19 has limited the ability of rural educators to connect in traditional ways, Partners for Education has committed to creating opportunities to continue sharing ideas, experience, and practical advice for improving educational opportunities in rural communities. Each month we will host a webinar featuring a conversation with people committed to serving the needs of rural students.
