The San Joaquin Valley Rural Development Center (SJVRDC) was established by the Office of Community and Economic Development at Fresno State in 2010 to serve as a one-stop resource center and technical assistance provider for rural communities in the San Joaquin Valley. SJVRDC is aligned with the principal of community engagement and public service that is a pillar of Fresno State. Many of the rural communities in the region are confronted with limited resources, staff, and time that impede their ability to carry out projects that are vital to the socio-economic well-being of their residents. SJVRDC addresses these challenges by connecting rural communities to a wide range of indispensable resources, services, and expertise that helps ensure community and economic development needs are met efficiently, effectively, and affordably.
