What is Community Building


The COD strives to build a community of support and mutual respect. We all need people to talk to when we are feeling down, or to share our frustration or worries. We also need people around us to celebrate our successes and laugh with us. The ability to form and nurture safe, trusting connections is a key resilience skill.

Community building provides us the opportunity to get to know each other, help each other, and work and volunteer together. Our diverse students, faculty, and staff have so many stories of inspiration. Let’s learn from each other.
