	%X The fundamental objective of the university is to
genuinely provide a higher education to mankind and society. Higher
education institutions earn billions of dollars in research funds, granted
by national government or related institutions, which literally came
from taxpayers. Everyday universities consume those grants; in return,
provide society with a human resource and research developments.
However, not all taxpayers have their major concerns on those
researches, other than that they are more curiously to see the project
being build tangibly and evidently to certify what they pay for. This
paper introduces the concept of University – Community Business
Continuity Management for Disaster – Resilient City, which modified
the concept of Business Continuity Management (BCM) toward
university community to create advancing collaboration leading to the
disaster – resilient community and city. This paper focuses on
describing in details the backgrounds and principles of the concept and
discussing the advantages and limitations of the concept.
