John McKnight's research is focused on social service delivery systems, health policy, community organization, neighborhood policy and the incorporation of labeled people into community life.

Anyone interested in successfully including people on the margins into neighborhood and community life needs to listen to John McKnight and study asset based community development.

Community Building

Co-Director of the Asset-Based Community Development Institute
Professor Emeritus of Communications Studies and Education and Social Policy at Northwestern University in Evanston, IL

All the people who live in a community can help to create a welcoming environment; one that recognizes the gifts, abilities, and skills of everyone there; and invites everyone to work together to build and strengthen their community.

Dr. McKnight brings this concept to life and talks about the key elements of asset based community development through his wit and the art of storytelling.
