​​​​​​​Agriculture is a staple of the rural education curriculum, and while a majority of students are involved in those programs, there is often little funding and inadequate spaces to support them.

Big congrats to architectural intern Mansi Sanghvi, who was recently awarded first prize in the urban/large scale category for the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign's School of Architecture Earl Prize Design Excellence Awards! Her award-winning project project focused on reviving the lost identities of two cities that shares common municipality.
