The mission of the Resilient Communities Research Consortium (RCRC) is to improve resilience in rural and urban communities.

The overall goals of  the RCRC are to develop an understanding of how communities engage in resilience planning, model how they engage, and develop tools and resources that enable communities to become more resilient.

We accomplish the mission and goals through collaborative, sustainable, university-based, multi-institutional, multidisciplinary, empirical and applied community resilience research.
