Creating Community on College Campuses addresses the most critical and difficult issues facing higher education in the 1990s: improving the quality of teaching and learning, raising academic standards, protecting freedom of expression, and simultaneously enhancing community of the whole and community of the parts. This book offers an understanding of community as a complex concept, one that incorporates the values of a democratic society and encourages learning and participation by all citizens of the campus, and discusses topics such as race and ethnicity, the climate for women, harassment and free speech, alcohol, crime, Greek life, and interaction among faculty and students. The authors conclude with concrete recommendations to support the implementation of pluralistic learning communities on our nation's campuses.

The goal of this book is to help those people whose lives are impacted by community association living – owners, residents, board members, volunteers, management staff and the business partners that service them – have a clearer understanding of the dynamics about how to create a community in the truest sense of the word: A collection of diverse individuals that are engaged with each other, informed about community issues and actively work together in order to accomplish goals that will make the community stronger and each of their individual lives better. Creating Community contains simple, yet profound, management strategies that board members, volunteers and management can utilize to attract the energy of change needed in order to bring people together towards the pursuit of common goals and objectives. In short, it is about the art of empowerment in community association living.

Together, the essays present viewpoints that reflect the diverse ethnic, cultural, and academic backgrounds of the contributors and of the university." "Creating Community is informed by the awareness that Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) have responded in significant ways to social changes of the past generation, and it addresses questions about the role of the black university in contemporary society. In this way, it offers readers the opportunity to understand how issues of diversity, identity, multiculturalism, and race impact Alabama State University in particular and HBCUs in general."--Jacket.

Listen deeply. Tell stories. This is the mantra of the Center for Digital Storytelling (CDS) in Berkeley California, which, since 1998 has worked with nearly 1,000 organizations around the world and trained more than 15,000 people in the art of digital storytelling. In this revised and updated edition of the CDS's popular guide to digital storytelling, co-founder Joe Lambert details the history and methods of digital storytelling practices. Using a "7 Steps" approach, Lambert helps storytellers identify the fundamentals of dynamic digital storytelling--from seeing the story, assembling it, and sharing it. As in the last edition, readers of the fourth edition will also find new explorations of the applications of digital storytelling and updated appendices that provide resources for budding digital storytellers, including information about past and present CDS-affiliated projects and place-based storytelling, a narrative-based approach to understanding experience and landscape. A companion website further brings the entire storytelling process to life. Over the years, the CDS's work has transformed the way that community activists, educators, health and human services agencies, business professionals, and artists think about story, media, culture, and the power of personal voice in creating change. For those who yearn to tell multimedia stories, Digital Storytelling is the place to begin.

In Creating Community-Led and Self-Build Homes, Martin Field explores the ways in which people and communities across the UK have been striving to create the homes and neighbourhood communities they want. Giving context to contemporary practices in the UK, the book examines ‘self-build housing’ and ‘community-led housing’, discussing the commonalities and distinctions between these in practice, and what could be learned from other initiatives across Europe. Looking at both individual methods and ‘models’ of local practice, including cohousing, co-operatives, community land trusts, empty homes and other ‘intentional communities’, the book examines what has constrained such initiatives to date and how future policies and practice might be shaped.

This is a time when organizations must develop far deeper relationships with customers. But they don't know how this is done profitably and at scale. This book will help usher confused organizations into a new future where community and profit mutually support one another. Carrie Melissa Jones and Charles H. Vogl highlight companies succeeding (Airbnb, Reddit, Apple, Toyota Motor Company, etc.) and those who are failing (left anonymous). The authors clarify the structural differences between authentic brand community and simple marketing, social media, and platform projects. Their book outlines brand community strategies and models for organizations that will help them create communities that make the world a better place for the organization's stakeholders and everyone else. Organizational leaders will gain the skills to distinguish how communities differ when serving marketing, innovation, advocacy, recruitment, retention, and social support goals and choose how best to succeed with their own goal-appropriate community models.

Since 1948, people suffering from mental health issues, mental health professionals, and committed volunteers have gathered at Fountain House in New York City to find relief from stigmatization and social alienation. Its “working community” approach has earned the organization vast critical recognition, enabling it to replicate its methods across the world. This volume describes the humanity, social inclusivity, personal empowerment, and perpetual innovation of the Fountain House approach. Evidence-based, cost-effective, and transferable, this model achieves crosscultural results by supporting the principles of personal choice, professional and patient collaboration, and the need to be needed, achieving substantive outcomes in employment, schooling, housing, and general wellness.

There is much talk today of 'new ways of being church' and 'new monastic spirituality'. As Simon Reed explored the Celtic roots of the Christian faith, in community with others who drew inspiration from our spiritual ancestors in the British Isles, he came to realise that the third millennium church has much in common with the first millennium church, and more importantly, much to learn from it. In Creating Community, he introduces us to a new but at the same time very old way of being church which is based upon three core elements: a Way of Life, a network of Soul Friends, and a rhythm of prayer. The book shows how the rediscovery of these elements by Christians today offers a vital key that opens up an ancient way for modern churches, one which not only helps to bring believers to lasting maturity but creates genuine and much-needed community in an increasingly fragmented world.'This book works on so many levels! It's a foundational guide to doing church, to becoming community and more importantly to living community. It's a guide book for individuals and a study book for churches.'
