North Central Regional Center for Rural Development


The Department partners with the North Central Cooperative Extension Association, the North Central Regional Association of State Agricultural Experiment Station Directors, MSU Extension, and MSU AgBioResearch to support the North Central Regional Center for Rural Development.  The Center supports research and extension related to rural development in its 12-state region via seed grants and information sharing activities. As such, the Center has an excellent grasp of current issues in the upper midwest, and how land grant colleges and universities in its region are working to address those issues.
