The Resilience Studies Consortium (RSC) utilizes a nation-wide network of universities in order to advance “place-based” educational opportunities for undergraduate students from a diversity of backgrounds and passions. By sharing academic resources, allowing for transferability between partner universities and creating pathways to a better understanding of resilience in the coming era, the RSC seeks to engage and empower students with rich environmental understanding.
