The National Forum to Advance Rural Education (NFARE) is one of the country’s leading rural education conferences. The event is designed to create an environment for collaboration and innovation with a diverse community that includes national experts, K–12 and higher education practitioners, leading researchers, policymakers, and philanthropic leaders from around the country.

Hosted by the National Rural Education Association (NREA) and the Rural Schools Collaborative, in partnership with the University of Tennessee-Chattanooga and the Tennessee Rural Education Association, NFARE 2023 will continue to be a hybrid event. This year’s theme will build upon prior years' theme, Raising Rural: A Fair Chance for a Good Life, which will explore creative and cooperative action around three strands: community, agency, and creativity.

Hundreds of attendees from across the United States will have the opportunity to discover and experience the latest rural innovations, best practices, research, and more. Join us in person in Chattanooga, TN, or virtually on November 16 and 17, 2023, and on November 15 for our new pre-conference.

General conference registration is open May 8, 2023.
