Creating Rural Connections

Through Education

The ARDN is a not-for-profit partnership of nine Albertan colleges and universities. 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.
