Abstract:  Latinos are the fastest growing minority population in the United States, and while much of the growth of the Latino population in the past was in metropolitan areas, the growth is now more dispersed.  The study is an explanatory multiple-case study conducted in four rural Minnesota communities – Montevideo, Worthington, Melrose, and Austin -- that have all experienced over 100 percent increases in their Latino populations during the past decade. The research team has conducted interviews with key informants in the public, private and nonprofit sectors of these communities to identify strategies that were used to lead across sectors as well as across ethnic groups.  Preliminary insights from the interview data suggest distinct integrative leadership challenges among White and Latino residents, as well as promising efforts to collaborate and create a common vision across ethnic and sector differences
