Regenerating Citizenship and
Building Abundant Communities
The College of Professional Studies sponsors the Project for Community Transformation to engage citizens, neighborhoods and organizations throughout Milwaukee in their reality, on their terms, and for their hopes. The project serves community throughout Milwaukee by providing . . .
- Safe places for unheard voices, and sometimes conflicting voices, in the communities to hear about their hopes, challenges, questions, conflicts and fractures.
- Gathering places for underrepresented groups to collaborate, cooperate and share their gifts and networks for transforming the communities.
- Nourishing places for those involved in the work of transforming communities to find refreshment, renewal and encouragement for their work.
In such places, participants create the conditions for the possibilities of personal and community transformation.
The project is field-testing its signature processes: Community Conversation Methodology, Asset Mapping, Discernment Sessions as well as workshops and retreats for action teams.
