Building the Intentional University

We believe in community by design. Yes, community can be formed organically and through serendipity, but we believe that a thriving, vibrant community that is as complex and global as Minerva’s — spanning seven cities and with students from scores of countries around the world — cannot be sustained without intention and effort. In this chapter, we summarize the steps we took to build a global community at Minerva, from the formation of a set of community values to the structures we created to promote community (at individual, micro-community, and macro-community levels) to the programs we designed to sustain and build community for Minervans for generations to come.
