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.

Berlin Master Planning & Community Conversations
Funded by a grant in 2006 from the New Hampshire State Council on the Arts, 250 of the 11,000 photographs were scanned with preservation quality resolution. A computer workstation was purchased and set up in Berlin which provided internet access to these images and the capacity for users to provide information on the images either by phone or computer. The Arts Alliance of Northern New Hampshire worked as a partner in making connections with Berlin-area community organizations and volunteers and in linking this project to a variety of local cultural initiatives through the hard work of a VISTA volunteer.
