Community Development

A community's sustainability depends on its long-term ability to meet residents needs.

Community development focuses on helping communities develop and support leaders and organizations within those communities.

Extension goals are to:

  • support the great communities that exist in Shawnee County.
  • increase citizen knowledge, awareness and understanding of public issues.
  • increase citizen's willingness to participate in the public process and take on leadership roles.
