PCRD to Play Key Role in Two Indiana SET Regions

Posted by Jennifer Helfrich on September 10, 2015, in SET.

Professional staff from the Purdue Center for Regional Development and Purdue Extension will play a key role in advancing the efforts of two groups of Indiana counties that are working to develop regional approaches to growing businesses and creating jobs as part of the Stronger Economies together program.

Stronger Economies Together is a nation-wide program undertaken in partnership with the regional rural development centers and the nation's land-grant university system aimed at developing a stronger regional mindset, increasing regional collaboration, discovering the region's current and emerging assets, and developing and implementing a high-quality regional economic development plan that aligns with the region's strengths.

The SET program is another example of how Purdue is strengthening collaborations to build vibrant economies across Indiana," said Jason Henderson, director of Purdue Extension. "It is a prime example of how Purdue expertise can assist communities as they build stronger economies to enhance the quality of life in Indiana."
