The Resilience Studies Consortium (RSC) seeks to utilize 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 Community Resilience in the coming era, the RSC seeks to engage and empower students with rich environmental understanding.

Our Shared Values :
Place-based education advances learning opportunities available to all partners in the RSC, connecting students to issues and solutions of their campuses' region, integrated with those across the regions of the RSC network. The result is a multi-place, place-based education.
The RSC network allows small and intimate liberal arts Institutions to share their academic and co-curricular offerings in ways that empower students with the skills and knowledge needed to succeed in a rapidly evolving world.
Diversity in regional, ethnic, social, generational, economic, and professional backgrounds strengthens our understanding of issues and potential solutions.
