College and universities across the United States are looking to become more resilient. Resiliency solutions aim to help higher education institutions survive, recover, adapt and thrive regardless of the stresses and shocks they experience. Resiliency requires integrated solutions that address complex issues like climate change, sea level rise, extreme weather events, energy continuity, aging infrastructure, community equity and engagement, health and cybersecurity. Whether it is managing critical assets, identifying campus vulnerabilities, mitigating risks, protecting and restoring the environment, or preparing for a more resilient future, higher education institutions are working on custom solutions in Boston and across the United States. This three part session will give an overview of Campus Resiliency from the perspective of flood resilience, energy resilience, and cybersecurity. Together, we will tackle the complex nature of resiliency and consider ways to incorporate resiliency into campus planning and design.
