Within the outreach portion of our mission, the Institute's goal is to reach community members, students, staff, faculty, various stakeholders, businesses, nonprofits, governments, legislators, and affected groups so that the information presented in the Community Indicators websites as well as our research can be understood and utilized.
We engage community members by consistently maintaining a presence in each of the communities that co-create the indicators projects with us.
We engage other stakeholders including governments, businesses, and nonprofits by forging relevant startegic partnerships and providing expertise.
