Let’s Put Rural Education on the Map
CEN is a growing network of high-performing rural school districts using their defining strengths to tackle their biggest challenges. We are empowering young people to build a future with more opportunity, prosperity, and impact. We are acutely aware that in rural settings, as the school goes, so goes the community.

As an organization, Collegiate Edu-Nation believes ALL means ALL. CEN extends ALL to include students, families, schools, employees, volunteers, and consultants—the whole community. CEN believes that education and training lead to better lives. The potential of ALL contributes to the prosperity and sustainability of their community, country, and world. CEN works to eliminate ALL poverty—historical, intergenerational, or newly impoverished. CEN’s mission is to empower ALL young people in rural communities to reinvent their local economies for 21st-century success. CEN intentionally supports ALL from the first day of Pre-K through postsecondary success and into the start of a meaningful career. We strive for a radically inclusive culture. CEN is a voice for ALL by reflecting diversity, equity, and inclusion in our leadership, membership, advocacy, pathways, partnerships, and communications. Our best evidence is to lead by example.
