Hazard and Climate Resilience Institute
We foster whole community collaboration to proactively build resilience to hazards and the impacts of a changing climate.
Resilience refers to a community’s ability to prepare for, respond to, & recover from events such as natural (& man-made) hazards. Promoting community resilience requires collaboration across many levels of society and professional disciplines, which is what motivates the Hazard and Climate Resilience Institute.
To become a nationally recognized research and training institute that facilitates the transfer and application of risk and resilience knowledge amongst stakeholders. We also aim to reduce the impacts of future hazards and climate change by cultivating social and environmental equity.
COVID-19 is actively testing the resilience of our society. The best action you can take is to stay informed and follow the CDC guidelines for protecting yourself and limiting the spread of the virus.
