Abstract

Much has been written about Virginia’s urban-rural divide. Vibrant Virginia explores the many ways that communities and regions across Virginia are bridging that divide by working together to cultivate a strong, vibrant, and inclusive economy. Written by scholars and practitioners with deep knowledge of the issues affecting the Commonwealth today, the chapters explore urgent topics including expanding K–12 education reform, supporting entrepreneurial ecosystems, immigrant incorporation, and expanding broadband access. The authors also offer practical guidance for Virginia communities as they strive for a more resilient and prosperous future.
