What is ARDN?

Creating Rural Connections

Through Education

Welcome to the ARDN

The ARDN is a not-for-profit organisation whose membership is comprised of 9 public universities and colleges. ARDN members work together to support and enhance the well-being of individuals and the vibrancy of communities. It draws on the strengths of rural communities, post-secondary institutions, and community based organizations to assist in the development of rural Alberta through education, research, collaboration and networking. The organization assists with the creation of community-driven projects, provides opportunities to create new partnerships, collects and shares applied research and information, and works with rural communities to identify and address gaps in education training.
