Welcome to SenseofCommunity.com, an international meeting place for people with a scientific or professional interest in the study or application of a sense of community. Our goal is to bring together the myriad of international scholars and practitioners to advance the work on sense of community that has been gaining interest and development over the past 50 years, if not longer.

This site is an opportunity to share your ideas, work, and questions. On this web site you will find a Library to post files or documents of your work or learn about the work of others.  The site also has a Discussion Forum to ask questions, assist others, and find opportunities to collaborate. If you haven’t used this site before, you may find it helpful to click on the How to Use this Site tab.

Users will also find this site as a gateway to the Sense of Community Index (SCI) and the Sense of Community Index-2 (SCI-2). Through this site, users are able to gain permission to use these copyrighted instruments as well as obtain advice from the developers and members of this online community. The Library contains approved translations of these instruments in several languages.

We hope to bring people together through this site in order to better understand how to develop a sense of community and address its challenges so we can bring about healthy, just, and equitable societies. Please invite others to join us on this journey.
