|Community entrepreneurship forum is April 17-18|
“Community Entrepreneurship” will be the focus of a unique community-university forum in Rugby, N.D. Community members from across the state and University of North Dakota faculty and students will meet to discover common interests and learn from each other.
This second annual forum April 17-18 is sponsored by the Community Connect Project, hosted by the UND Center for Community Engagement. It will feature discussions about funding for community projects, community planning and evaluation, community information gathering, promoting community arts, and youth and senior citizens as assets for North Dakota communities. Exhibits of community-university projects and resources as well as opportunities for networking will be available. The Rugby-based Heartland Civic Orchestra will perform Friday evening after the tours at Tilman Hovland Auditorium, Rugby High School, 7:30 p.m.
Community Connect is a community-university public media project that also includes a Web site and journal to be premiered at the forum. Registration for the forum is free of charge. Contact Lana Rakow, director of the Center for Community Engagement, to register at 777-2287, email@example.com or visit www.communityengagement.und.edu.
