Community and Economic Vitality

Cornell Cooperative Extension supports informed decision making by communities through engaged relationships, research & education, and civic engagement. CCE supports citizens and communities who seek a restored balance, and overall quality of life for all, that includes environmental health, a sense of community, economic opportunities, and effective leadership & decision making.

Since 1990, the Community and Regional Development Institute has strengthened Cornell's role as a leader in responding to current and emerging needs in community, rural and regional development. Working with Cornell faculty and staff, including CCE's network of county offices, and other state and regional institutions, CaRDI is a center of dialogue and collaboration addressing needs at the local, state, and national levels.
