Asset-Based Community Engagement in Higher Education

ByJohn HamerlinckJulie Plaut

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
As campuses seek to prepare students for work, life, and citizenship and to contribute to positive community change, Asset-Based Community Development (ABCD) deserves more attention. The idea is simple: whether working to reduce health disparities, support youth development, or expand economic opportunity in urban and rural areas, the most powerful approach builds relationships and partnerships grounded in the strengths of every individual, association, and institution involved. This collection of essays and case studies addresses both the potential and challenges for asset-based community engagement in higher education. “This book is a treasure chest of experience and advice from the best theorists and practitioners in the field. Invaluable.” John McKnight, Co-Director, Asset Based Community Development Institute, Northwestern University
