This is to remind crvnetters that the Center for Research on Vermont 
will sponsor #108 in its Research-in-Progress Seminar Series on 
Wednesday, March 27, 1996, at 7:30 P.M.  The presentation, "The EPIC 
Project--Environmental Programs/Partnerships in Communities:  New 
Approaches to Rural Development,"  by Jean Richardson of the UVM 
Environmental Program will take place in Memorial Lounge on the main 
floor of the Waterman Building at UVM. 

EPIC was founded in 1992, in response to the need for a more 
comprehensive approach to rural development, one which would 
facilitate collaboration between disciplines at the University of 
Vermont, and between the university and community-based and state 
organizations and individuals. 

This illustrated presentation will report on the work of EPIC 
participants to date and present some findings. The meeting is open 
to the public, and your questions and comments are welcome.
