The Turner Center for Rural Vitality works to cultivate thriving rural communities by creating opportunities for cross-sector collaboration in order to build a vibrant rural ecosystem in south central Tennessee and beyond.
Building a vibrant rural community requires everyone to be part of creating innovative solutions. At the Turner Center, we bring leaders from across the community – faith leaders; federal, state and local governments; business leaders; and non-profits – so that we can build upon our assets to find new opportunities for growth and unlock the potential in our rural spaces.
Small Business and Workforce Development
Growing a vibrant rural community requires a strong business community. We strive to offer resources and programs for the small businesses and entrepreneurs at the heart of our community. As rural economies continue to shift and change, we offer programs to ensure our workforce is ready to face the challenges of the future.
Access to Healthcare
Affordable, quality healthcare is essential to the livelihood of the community. At the Turner Center, we connect the resources of our campus, like our nursing program, with partners in the community, like our local hospital, faith communities, and civic organizations. By working together, we find innovative ways to lower the cost of healthcare to providers and patients, building a healthier community for everyone.
