GRI Student Alumni


The Global Resilience Institute is proud to participate in the Northeastern University co-op program, an experiential learning opportunity. Through the program, students (such as these GRI “alums”!) come from both the undergraduate and graduate level to work on an interdisciplinary team of researchers seeking to solve complex resilience challenges. GRI co-ops not only provide critical support for the Institute’s mission, but also get practical training in the skills needed for a career in resilience, including research and writing, critical thinking, and collaborating with experts from all fields of study. The Global Resilience Institute also offers the same learning opportunities through part-time research positions for students currently enrolled in classes.
