Rural Studio part of Auburn’s national Innovation and Economic Prosperity University Award
CADC’s Rural Studio is part of Auburn University’s Place Award from the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities. APLU’s fourth annual Innovation & Economic Prosperity University Awards honor public universities that are actively engaged in and promoting regional economic development. Universities compete in four different categories that recognize different components of economic engagement: talent, innovation, place and connections. The Place Award “recognizes Auburn for excelling in community, social and cultural development work.” Auburn’s application highlighted the work of Rural Studio, the National Poultry Technology Center and the off-bottom oyster farming initiative at the Auburn University Shellfish Lab.
