by CPED Staff - October 25, 2019
Starting this month, you can hear us on air on public radio.
October 2019 marks the beginning of us bringing our educational content to the ears
of Arkansans thanks to a new partnership between the University of Arkansas System
Division of Agriculture Cooperative Extension Service’s Community, Professional, and
Economic Development (CPED) unit and UA Little Rock Public Radio KUAR/KLRE.
Each month, KUAR will air three one-minute educational spots with new spots each month.
Branded as “Strengthening Our Communities,” these spots will feature topics related
to the various programs and resources housed in the CPED department. Our goal is to
educate listeners about community and economic development pursuits and illuminate
the tools and resources available to empower Arkansans.
These spots will showcase the ways in which the CPED unit strives to strengthen agriculture,
communities and families in Arkansas by connecting trusted research to the adoption
of best practices. We strive to help communities create viable options for economic
and community development, and provide leadership development for those serving in
KUAR also champions empowerment. According to their mission statement, UA Little Rock
Public Radio seeks to “deepen insight into the human experience, empower decision-making
and enrich the lives of those we serve through quality news and cultural programs.”
By providing us the opportunity to reach more people on public radio, KUAR has unified
our shared vision to education and empower listeners and community members.
Our three initial spots explore:
