The types of research include traditional, applied, participatory, student, and special topics. Topics cover community and rural development, policy, program delivery and assistance, arts and culture, marketing and consumer preferences, innovation and new technologies, youth and education, natural resource conservation, health and nutrition, and faith-based issues. The focal areas include the Southern Black Belt, persistent poverty issues, small farm issues, sustainability, and international development issues.
