Latino Business and Community Development

The ISU Extension and Outreach Community and Economic Development (CED) program has been proactively engaging Iowa’s growing Latino population since 2007, fostering community empowerment and leadership development, and earning national recognition for its work.  Through a partnership with the Iowa Small Business Development Centers, CED provides a wide range of assistance to Latino-owned businesses.  Collaborations between Iowa State design studios and participating businesses provide assistance with branding and marketing and support student-driven outreach projects in a variety of disciplines.
