Institute Initiatives

Research and Knowledge-sharing

We partner with community residents and other local entities to conduct research that helps prepare them to achieve their own community building objectives. One of our goals is to share knowledge and experiences from asset-based community development work so that others may apply them in their work as well.

Student Involvement and Teaching​

We're committed to developing the next generation of engaged civic leaders and community builders. Through several mechanisms including teaching, civic engagement, and hands-on experiential learning opportunities students gain and understanding of major sociological and political issues affecting their communities and the world. ​
