Our Mission

The Global Resilience Institute is committed to informing and advancing societal resilience around the world.

Our university-wide Institute is partnering with other leading academic research institutions, nonprofits and the public and private sectors to devise and apply practical, interdisciplinary innovations and solutions to resilience challenges.
