It is important to remember that communities will take various forms, and there is not one right way to create community.
Here are some ways that will help you build better communities:

Floor & Apartment Meetings
Community Standards
The first few weeks of the semester are very crucial for building community on your floor and in your area! Having residents work together on the first day will increase their abilities to communicate for the rest of the time that they live together!
Role Model Respect
Start with a unifying purpose.
Create, maintain, and update simple and practical Mission and Vision statements.
Set goals and objectives.
Goals are where you want to go.
Objectives are how you are going to get there.
Believe in what you are doing and the people who are doing it.
