Learn about Community Development from four of our students.

Thanks to Brad Vince for producing these videos as part of his 4th year student project.


Why Community Development?

We develop professionals who are leaders that contribute to building active, healthy, sustainable communities and lifestyles. Students may maintain a broad focus or specialize in one of four areas of study:

• Recreation Management • Community Wellness
• Social Activism • Outdoor & Adventure Ed

Students work collaboratively with faculty in small classes and the community. Each student is an individual, not a number, who grows his or her leadership skills. Essential theory and concepts are balanced with hands-on learning. Each year, students participate in major community projects, including a 4th year option in an international setting. They gain valuable work experience in organizations relevant to their interest through a professional work placement. Graduates complete the equivalent of a minor in management. A co-op option is available for all of the degrees.
