The Faculty of Extension is pleased to host a conversation about pathways for strengthening communities and municipalities. This event is an opportunity to celebrate the publication of a series of four scholarly manuscripts, each of which provides unique insight and expertise into the challenges and opportunities for creating prosperous, sustainable, and resilient communities.
The session will begin with a brief introduction to each book, and an opportunity to build a conversation across the themes presented. Please join us in concluding the session with a short reception - coffee and snacks will be provided.
