NCKCN has set forth and continues to adhere to the following goals since its inception:
• To benefit those individuals and communities that find themselves left out of the technology revolution at the current time and thereby begin the immediate process of developing a cultural awareness of informational technology in rural communities.
• To broaden everyone's view of community and lessen the sense of rural isolation by heightening local awareness of the human and physical resources possessed by the whole of North Central Kansas that can be accessed to address local need.
• To broaden the application and use of informational technology within the education and business structure of North Central Kansas through demonstration and education.Learn more about NCKCN
