Michigan State University's Land Policy Institute is getting ready to launch a new on-line assessment tool designed to help communities explore their assets and impacts on prosperity. LPI is seeking volunteers to help test the tool and provide them with feedback.
The tool is based on a framework designed to evaluate the readiness of Michigan communities to transition to the New Economy on the basis of four strategic resources - Talent, Innovation capacity, Diversity and Environment - otherwise known as T.I.D.E.
The test is being conducted until Friday, April 29th and should take about 30 minutes to complete. To access the T.I.D.E. website and tool go to, http://tide.landpolicy.msu.edu. The survey to provide feedback on the tool can then be found at: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/JQPYWRT
For any questions or difficulties, please contact Heidi Charron at firstname.lastname@example.org or Benjamin Calnin at email@example.com
