How higher ed works with communities to build resilience
When we think of the word "resilience," we tend to think of being able to withstand and bounce back from disaster — personally, institutionally or societally. And it's true that a big part of resilience is the ability to get up, brush off and get back to business. However, when we started looking at resilience and what it might mean for higher education, as well as the role higher education could play in societal resilience, we immediately understood that it provides us with a much larger framework for success and the ability to design and drive towards positive outcomes.
