Rural Iowa is getting left behind in the search for a just world. This presentation will focus on how innovative community-connected projects in online course curricula can reach across geographic boundaries to both positively influence student learning outcomes while also creating social change in rural Iowa communities through nonprofit capacity building efforts. The online course Nonprofit Organizational Effectiveness will be used to illustrate how a meaningful community engagement project can propel students to dive into the research, 'go beyond service,' and learn how to effectively engage as active citizens in their own communities through the power of online instruction. This presentation will offer methods of leveraging institutional resources to support the successful implementation of a community engagement project in an online course context, increase student-community partner interactions, and provide the means towards social changes in rural Iowa communities.
