 Center for Rural Education

Virtual Conference

2024 Date TBD

The Center for Rural Education was founded to encourage post-secondary goals for rural Tennessee students, support pre-service teaching candidates from rural areas, enhance the professional opportunities for rural teachers, and contribute to the profession with rural research. This third annual virtual conference assists the Center for Rural Education in achieving these goals. This conference intends to foster collaboration and innovation for rural schools nationwide, as we bring together a diverse group of practitioners, researchers, policy makers, and educational leaders. Registrants will have the opportunity to interact with innovative educators and leaders working in rural schools and communities. The most recent conference was held on March 21, 2023 with a focus on "Cultivating Rural Initiatives: Educational access for all students, innovative teacher education programs, and transformative community partnerships."
