CED Educators provide comprehensive assistance to counties and communities through economic development initiatives and customized strategic planning. For communities with no formal
economic development organizations, CED Educators provide essential services that bring research-based community and economic development practices to even the smallest communities.
For larger communities, CED Educators work collaboratively with existing networks to use university research to augment existing economic and community development efforts and support
municipal or county economic development departments, economic development organizations, and chambers of commerce. Services and programs include customized planning and visioning,
disaster mitigation planning for businesses and non-profits, proposal development, community engagement programs, and survey design and research.
