A new partnership in Dubuque hopes to strengthen area development efforts, as well as share successful strategies with other communities across Iowa and Wisconsin to support more sustainable economies. The Dubuque Institute for Sustainable Communities and Economic Development is a collaboration of ISU Extension and Outreach, University of Wisconsin-Extension and the City of Dubuque.

Staff will research the area’s successful history of regional development and strategies for addressing new regional challenges, and share the learning and results with other communities. The institute is expected to be established and staffed by this fall, said Tim Borich, program director for Community and Economic Development.
