Low-capacity communities often lack the necessary resources to build community resilience. In order to connect community members to these necessary resources, the Engagement Hub Project works to establish a clearly defined front door to maximize involvement with low-capacity communities through place-based institutions like Clemson University. The goal of the project is to increase community resilience and build capacity county-by-county, working to create both virtual and physical hubs to effectively provide resources and connect community members with knowledge experts in South Carolina. The current scope of the project is to work with Anderson County and its respective resources, eventually expanding down the Savannah River Watershed. In order to increase the number of place-based institutions in communities, a goal of the Engagement Hub is to establish the county-specific resource database into libraries to expand to as many community members as possible.
