The Center for Rural Partnerships (CRP) at Plymouth State University is pleased to announce the launch of a two year community-based engagement project focused on the quality of life in the towns of Haverhill Corner, North Haverhill and Woodsville.
The project, known as the Haverhill Civic Forum, will consist of a series of facilitated small group discussions in which local residents identify topics of community importance for further public exploration. These community conversations will be facilitated by PSU faculty and undergraduate students enrolled in PSU’s Rural Field Studies course over the next 21 months at convenient public locations throughout the area. Through constructive dialogue and in partnership with student and faculty facilitators, community members participating in the Haverhill Civic Forum will identify local priorities, set achievable objectives, and ultimately enhance quality of life in the Haverhill area. A specific priority of the Haverhill Civic Forum will be to invite underrepresented groups (such as high school students, senior citizens and others) to contribute to local conversations. Dates for public meetings will be announced in the newspaper and other venues in the coming weeks.
The Center for Rural Partnerships dedicates Plymouth State University’s research, outreach, and educational capacities to foster collaborative projects that promote community resilience, opportunity, and a high quality of life in rural New Hampshire.
