Southern Rural Development Center Annual Progress Report, FY 1981.
Southern Rural Development Center, Mississippi State, MS.
Since 1974 the Southern Rural Development Center (SRDC) has provided support staff for capacity building and innovative programming for the experiment stations and extension services of 28 land-grant universities in 13 southern states and Puerto Rico. The Center exists to provide the best possible information and assistance to extension and research staffs throughout the South as they respond to rural development needs in local communities. The report highlights Center activities for 1981 in the broad areas of extension, research, information dissemination, and workshops. The extension section (four projects) includes discussion of the Southern Rural and Agricultural Crime Education Network and the Community Technology Initiatives Program (Circuit Rider). The research section (14 projects) covers such SRDC projects as University Knowledge/Technology Transfer and Public Decision-Making, and The Development of a Southern Regional Research Data Base: Model for Action. The information dissemination section discusses the Center's regular and special publications, as well as the SRDC library and loan materials. The workshop section describes five conferences in which the SRDC played a major role and lists a number of other conferences attended by staff during the year. The report concludes with short sections on Annual Evaluation, the SRDC Staff, and Administration. (BRR)
