The mission of the Center for Building Community is to address the crises of community that exist at all levels of society. This is done with a dual focus:
1. Within the student body a select and ethnically diverse group of students from all majors meets weekly to develop insights and sharpen skills as current and future community servant-leaders.
2. An ongoing program of research, writing and speaking is conducted external to the campus for local, state, national and occasional international audiences.
