Spotlight on CEED

Twelve students, many funded through the Fahrner Fund for Community Engagement, collaborated with four faculty project directors from the Center for Economic & Environmental Development (CEED) and ten community partners on a series of projects emphasizing community and environmental health, arts-based community development, aquaponics and local food, alternative energy, and community asset mapping. These ongoing initiatives have evolved through reciprocal relationships that grow directly from the goals of our community partners and CEED’s mission of bringing students, faculty and community partners into collaborations that focus on environmental stewardship, environmental education and regional revitalization.
