In 1990 the College established the Center for Economic and Community Development, as part of the Division of College Advancement. The Center is a research and problem-solving resource to the community with a focus on projects that require in-depth research and development of creative strategies to address challenges facing people, organizations, and municipalities. Generally, Center projects focus on issues pertaining to economic development, business development, tourism, community development, and local government operations.
The Center has developed a wide variety of collaborative relationships to develop strategies and action plans which address such issues as downtown revitalization, strategic planning, economic impact analysis, community surveys, leadership development, tourism analysis, small business training, and nonprofit organizational development. The Center also manages the Leadership Otsego Program which provides leadership training within Otsego County.
Students can gain valuable and pertinent work experience from the Center’s activities through internships and applied research. In the past, the Center has had student interns from the Political Science department and the Division of Business and Economics. www.oneonta.edu/advancement/cecd
