KWASU nurtures community

Community Development is an action oriented, locally driven educational process directed towards strengthening economic bases and social structures so that citizens are better able to live sustainably and to effectively manage change. Community Development is a continous, dynamic process of identifying goals; taking action; reflecting on that action and adapting strategies accordingly. The task is never complete.


Director, Center for Community Development, David HannisThe Mission of the Center for Community Development is to support  KWASU’s central mandate to be the University for Community Development by providing relevant educational opportunities for faculty, staff, students and members of the community at large so that they gain a better understanding of the theory and practice of community development.
