Pathfinders RC&D, along with other RC&D councils in Iowa, is working with the University of Iowa’s Office of Outreach and Engagement to assist communities in our region with community development efforts.
The new partnership utilizes a mix of community engagement opportunities at the University of Iowa, including community-engaged learning courses, community-based research by faculty and graduate students, and staff outreach.
This partnership already produced several projects including:
- communication plan for the Historic Hills Scenic Byway
- workshop for museum staff and volunteers about document preservation
- short documentary films about Pathfinders RC&D and four of our projects
