University of Minnesota Morris: Otto Bremer Trust Grant to Support Center for Small Towns

EXCERPT: “The University of Minnesota Morris Center for Small Towns (CST) has been awarded an operating support grant for 2018-2019 by the Otto Bremer Trust. This award will help further CST’s work with small towns and community groups across Minnesota . . . CST provides research, education, and program support to Minnesota communities of fewer than 5,000. Through its core program, Connecting Students and Communities, CST supports dozens of communities each year by matching students and faculty who provide marketing, survey, research, and other skills with local governments and nonprofits who need help with projects that may be out of reach because of small staffs, limited funds, or other needs. In turn, students get professional work experience and see firsthand what makes greater Minnesota a great place to live and work.” FULLSTORY:
