President Terenzio Appears on Rural Matters Podcast

President Marion A. Terenzio, Ph.D., made a guest appearance on the Rural Matters Podcast as part of its series Designing Postsecondary Alternatives for Rural Learners. The series explores the decisions that rural learners face in pursuit of their educational goals and how decisions made on an institutional level can balance student, workforce, and societal needs.

Dr. Terenzio says it is essential that institutes of higher education work hand-in-hand with their communities to shape agendas for regional economic development. The Institute for Rural Vitality at SUNY Cobleskill stands as an example of complementing applied learning capabilities with community partnership goals, rooted in a “Thriving College, Thriving Community” mindset.

Joining Dr. Terenzio in this episode are James Decker, mayor of Stamford, Texas, and Miriam Hoffman, a college student from Illinois.
