Tackling the Issue
We see every challenge as an opportunity, and this initiative helps us ensure that our communities are better prepared to manage the relationships that are needed in regards to criminal justice.
Doing What’s Needed
As the entire country is undergoing an economic transformation, there lacks a simple necessity: affordable housing. At the Great Plains Institute, we are committed to researching and presenting viable solutions.
Highlighting the Issue
We are committed to being a part of the solution and being a community resource. This initiative helps us ensure that our partners are better prepared to manage the unique situations they find themselves in. We are invested in an innovative approach that empower our communities.
Understanding the Issue
Being based in Kansas, we understand rural living. At the Great Plains Institute, we put an emphasis on rural communities, more specifically on the rural healthcare system.
What does it mean to be civically engaged? Our goal is to encourage young Kansans to become aware of their civic potential and become active in their communities.
Looking to the Future
At the Great Plains Institute, we are determined to understanding how an ever-changing economy affects our communities.
