Community building


On this page you can find information about community building at UT. The handbook can be a valuable tool you can use for building new communities and strengthening existing ones.

As described in Shaping2030, strong communities are a priority in shaping individuals, connections and society. In the meantime, at the UT, much has been said about communities and community building without going into the how, what, who, where and when. In this document we lay down the basis for community building for the UT. The handbook has been written with the aim to provide a sufficient starting point for everyone at the University of Twente (UT) in setting up and strengthening communities.

The Community Building Handbook (PowerPoint) is a generic resource on community building, with the applicability of various passages from the handbook depending on the group concerned. It is a take-whatever-you-need-from-this-handbook since every community is unique and therefore requires a unique and customised approach. The handbook is specifically useful for individuals working in a connecting or promotional role, but could be of use for everyone who is interested in creating or strengthening communities. To provide additional information to the Community Building Handbook (PowerPoint), we also provide a Complementary Guide for more in depth information.
