What is Community Development?
Community Development is a planned and organized process through which people and communities learn how they can help themselves.
One of our goals at K-State Research and Extension is to provide technical assistance and evidence based programs to citizens who want to make sure their communities survive and prosper.
Community Development can also be defined as a group of people in a locality initiating a social action process through planned intervention to improve their seven capitals situation. The seven community capitals are natural, cultural, human, social, political, financial, and built. Click on the Logo below for more information.
