Leadership and Community Building Programs

Working with communities to create positive social change through access to education

Community engagement and capacity building are central to work in our Leadership and Community Building Programs. We work with diverse communities, partners, and faculty members to co-create and offer a wide spectrum of programming.

Our goal is to help people strengthen their communities and establish new pathways to the university while maintaining academic excellence. We value diverse ways of learning.

We bring together community-based experts and leading academics in our programs, projects, and workshops to focus on a number of topic areas, including the following:

  • Indigenous community leadership
  • Indigenous health and wellness
  • Community capacity-building
  • Community leadership
  • Community health
  • Community literacy
  • Civic engagement
  • Dialogue
  • Facilitation skills
