University of Minnesota Extension has been involved in developing and fostering leadership and civic engagement skills in individuals and communities for over 20 years. Through the Center for Community Vitality's programs and cohorts, educators have instructed and interacted with thousands of participants in all parts of the state of Minnesota.
Extension is committed to the continued support of these alumni and the difference they make in their communities.
The Leadership and Civic Engagement Alumni site is a one-stop resource hub designed to support alumni through four main channels:
  • To provide further learning, tips, and information
  • To connect alumni with each other and help in relationship building
  • To link alumni to grants. jobs, and other relevant opportunities
  • To bring alumni together around locations, areas of interest, or other similarities to build social capital
