*Abma and Cutting’s project was called the “ARI Graduate Impact Study.”  (It is different from an earlier study carried out by the Fetzer Institute that bears the same name.)  The study produced two major pieces.  The first was a highly valuable academic report provided to ARI called Leading at the Grassroots: A Study of the Influence of Asian Rural Institute Graduates on Communities.  This report gives an in-depth analysis of the work of ARI graduates, and it offers a series of recommendations for ARI to consider as it develops curriculum to meet the needs of rural community leaders in a fast-changing world.  The second piece – aimed at a more general audience and more anecdotal – is this book, Rural Leaders:  The Work and Community Impact of Graduates of the Asian Rural Institute.
