RSC statement on insurrection at the U.S. Capitol
January 11, 2021
The Resilience Studies Consortium is outraged by the attempted coup, and the politicians who incited it, at the U.S. Capitol on January 6th.
As a consortium of university Schools dedicated to freedom and justice, we will always stand for and teach the integrity of democratic process, evidence-based decision-making, and the rejection of autocratic power over the voice of the people.
The faculty and staff of the RSC are eager to engage with students in a new year inspiring discussion, respectful disagreements, and diverse dreams based on shared evidence about building a freer, more democratic, and more resilient society, together.
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.
