Center for Rural School Health & Education
The Center for Rural School Health & Education (CRSHE) is dedicated to partnering with rural schools to improve health and education outcomes. CRSHE projects are created and implemented in close collaboration with community partners and resources are developed in response to expressed community needs and interests. All CRSHE initiatives embody principles of social justice, racial equity and community engagement, and contribute to the vision of all children, youth and adults in rural communities living healthy, meaningful lives.
ECHO-DU is part of a global model for providing virtual professional learning to professionals. While most ECHO sites around the world focus on healthcare, ours is one of the few focused on the P-20 education system. Participants collaborate with other educators in a case-based learning environment in order to learn about evidence-based practices and develop advanced skills related to mental health, school health-wellness and school leadership.
