The Knight Program in Community Building is a forum
for examining the state-of-the-art in community building.
The programís mission is to advance the knowledge and
practice of effective community building through an innovative series of
interdisciplinary initiatives including fellowships, scholarships,
conferences, charrettes, and publications.
Todayís communities face a host of urgent problems
ranging from growth issues to quality-of-life concerns. The Knight Program
fosters an interdisciplinary approach to these complex problems in the
belief that the cooperation of diverse professions is essential for
creating and maintaining livable communities. The fellowship, which is the
heart of the Knight Program, each year brings together twelve
distinguished mid-career professionals from a multitude of fields.
The Knight Program is based at the University of
Miami School of Architecture and is funded by the John S. and James L.
Knight Foundation, which promotes excellence in journalism worldwide and
invests in the vitality of twenty-six U.S. communities.
