NFHERN Second Annual Meeting
Please join us for this gathering of academic, community, and private sector leaders to explore the role of higher education in the vitality of rural communities from the Adirondacks to Nova Scotia. This two day event will focus upon two themes: Connections and Curriculum. The ‘Connections’ discussion will explore strategies for higher education institutions to play an active role in regional development initiatives such as the Northern Borders Commission and the Sustainable Economies Initiative. A key feature of the ‘Curriculum’ discussion will be the Northern Forest Studies Program, a distributed undergraduate education program developed by Sterling College in partnership with the Northern Forest Higher Education Resource Network.
