Southern Rural Development Center Annual Progress Report, FY 1984.
Southern Rural Development Center, Mississippi State, MS.
Twenty major activities in fiscal year (FY) 1984 fulfilled the Southern Rural Development Center's (SRDC) obligation to focus specifically on the rural problems of the region and to support the community development efforts of 29 land-grant universities in 13 southern states, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands. During FY84 SRDC had an active role in seven meetings involving training about community/rural development (leadership development, minority land loss, computer utilization, etc.), training rural clergy to minister to troubled families (problems of death and dying, money management, substance abuse), training Garden Club and community members for effective leadership, and facilitating improvement of the Kellogg Rural Leadership Program through co-sponsoring a national workshop for Kellogg Leadership Program directors. SRDC was also active in two networks, the National Network on Extension Community Leadership Programs and the Southern Region Business Management Network. SRDC cooperated with the other rural development centers in developing designs for in-service education of cooperative extension personnel. Six studies or projects were completed or are underway. The Center's information dissemination program resulted in training manuals for rural officials, a newsletter, conference materials, reprints of current awareness materials, a rural development training packet, six conference proceedings, and nine reports, directories, etc. (BRR)
