Strong schools are essential to strong rural communities, which is why the Community Foundation of Greater Dubuque facilitates initiatives focused on issues of student achievement. Now, the Foundation is expanding its work to bolster rural education as it becomes the new Iowa hub for Rural Schools Collaborative (RSC).
As RSC’s Iowa hub, the Community Foundation’s goal is to support thriving rural communities through a focus on one of the systems that has the biggest impact on small-town quality of life: education. The Foundation will work to enhance the vitality of rural education by bridging local generosity, ingenuity and leadership with efforts like teacher training and place-based learning.
Our new Iowa is anchored by the Community Foundation of Greater Dubuque with Jason Neises, Community Development Coordinator, serving as the hub contact.
