The Mississippi State University Extension Service Intelligent Community Institute (MSUES-ICI) assists and educates rural communities on how to plan for, transition to, and prosper in the digital age.

The MSUES-ICI conducts outreach and research that generates knowledge and shares information with Mississippi residents and the world on how communities can transition into and benefit from the digital age.

  • Digital equality
  • Advocacy/marketing
  • Sustainability
