We live in a rapidly changing and globalizing world, with technologies and organizations ever more in flux. The field of Community Informatics has significant potential to increase the "collaboration capacity" of society.

Research Meets Practice

Science and society need one another. Academic insights can help reflect on practices "in the real world". The work of practitioners, in turn, can help ground and enrich scientific theory.


The mission of CommunitySense is to be a linking pin between academics and practitioners in the rapidly advancing field of Community Informatics, advancing theory while improving practice.
