Community Vitality

A community's sustainability depends on its long-term ability to meet residents' needs. One of our goals at K-State Research and Extension is to provide technical assistance and evidence-based programs to citizens who want to make sure their communities survive and prosper.

K-State Research and Extension can play a key role in helping people create a vision across traditional geographical, sociological, and political boundaries.
