CCOI Projects

CCOI projects are far-ranging in scope, subject area, content, and audience.  Past projects include bringing a world-class chamber orchestra to a northern New Hampshire school, including curricular support for students and teachers, and a day-long workshop with principal musicians; co-creating a 2 + 2 agreement with a regional community college that makes it possible for students who complete its two-year degree program in inforamtion technology to matriculate as third-year students at PSU; working closely with a community organization to measure salt values in a critical water source, across seasons and weather conditions; and developing the first-ever econimic index of rural northern New Hampshire.

The links in the left hand navigation menu will take you into detailed information about each of the CCOI projects, including purpose, outcomes, and lessons learned.  We welcome your questions, suggestions, and other feedback.
