Programs and Services

The programs and services that the Center for Small Towns offers are as varied as the communities it works with. CST will adapt programs and services to the unique needs and requirements of small towns throughout the state. Because there is a multifaceted programming model, there are infinite programming possibilities with CST.

CST works closely with community oriented groups such as non-profits, K-12 schools, community governments for towns with populations 5,000 or below, chambers of commerce, and various other citizen-oriented groups.

CST prides itself on offering a flexible and multifaceted methodology that allows it to adapt to the various needs of communities. At the core of our methodology is student involvement, as students work one-on-one with communities, non-profits, and schools in small towns. Surrounding student work and input are the core methodologies that the Center for Small Towns utilizes to continue to provide full and comprehensive services to small communities throughout the state. CST focuses on providing assistance in brokering resources, program evaluation, applied research and information, and community planning and development. Our methodology is never a means for limiting our programming. Instead, it helps to provide a framework for small towns as we assess what resources are most likely to help them.
