Penn State’s 2018 Annual Symposium on Family Issues

Rural Families and Communities
See registration costs below
Nittany Lion Inn, University Park campus, State College, PA

Although the rural-urban divide is often portrayed as the most important geographic distinction, there is tremendous diversity across rural communities. Contrary to some depictions, families in rural areas come from diverse backgrounds. Further, some rural areas are resource constrained while others host opportunities that can support healthy families and child well-being.

The 2018 National Symposium on Family Issues will focus on the challenges facing families in rural areas and the unique strategies invoked by families in rural areas today.

Attendance is free for Penn State students and employees; $50 for students and post-docs from other universities; $90 for all others.

Approved for 6.0 CFLE contact hours (0.6 CEUs) of continuing education credit.
