Greene County has been chosen as community partner for the Indiana University Center for Rural Engagement’s Sustaining Hoosier Communities Initiative. Plans call for more than a dozen community-related projects during the 2019-2020 academic year.

The initiative connects IU Bloomington faculty and students with rural communities to form projects to address health and wellness issues. 

"We are enthusiastic about partnering with Greene County, a community with many assets including natural landscapes, exciting recreational and arts offerings, close-knit small towns and cities, new innovative opportunities, and an energized leadership base," said Kerry Thomson, executive director of the IU Center for Rural Engagement. "The community and Indiana University partnership will be energetic and productive during the coming year."

A planning session to discuss ideas and goals will be held for interested residents from 6-7:30pm Wednesday, January 23 at the Greene County 4-H Fairgrounds’ Green Crop Services room.
