Staff Connie Stewart, California Center for Rural Policy:
Connie Stewart, director of HSU’s California Center for Rural Policy, has received a 2014 Innovations in Networking Award in Gigabit/Broadband Applications from CENIC, the Corporation for Education Network Initiatives in California. The annual award highlights innovations in ultra high-bandwidth networking, particularly those with the potential to revolutionize instruction and research or those that further the deployment of broadband in underserved areas.
Connie has represented numerous groups in support of high-speed broadband access in northwestern California. She has organized efforts to expand service to low income and rural unserved and underserved communities and has been successful in securing grant funding and working with county officials to build broadband connections. Her work through CCRP also includes a number of projects related to health services through access to broadband in rural areas. The CCRP was instrumental in the development of the Redwood Coast Connect project, a consortium of six member organizations the long-term goal of which was making affordable, ubiquitous broadband available to all of the rural communities in the Redwood Coast region.
The 2014 awards will be presented on Tuesday, March 11 at the CENIC annual conference, Above & Beyond, March 10-12, 2014, at Sonoma State University.
