Pennsylvania Rural Leadership Program (RULE)

PA RULE is a Penn State-sponsored leadership program.

PA RULE is a Penn State-sponsored leadership program. RULE encourages and fosters the development of community leaders from all segments of Pennsylvania by using a program of study to:

  • Provide an opportunity for interested citizens to explore community problems and issues from a broad socioeconomic perspective and learn how they can participate more effectively in public decision-making.
  • Increase participant understanding of social organizations in communities; processes by which groups make decisions; strategies by which decisions are implemented; inter-organizational networks; government’s role in helping to solve public problems; and the economic, political, cultural, and social forces of direct importance to public policy decision-making.
