The Resilient Communities Project connects local government agencies in Minnesota with University of Minnesota faculty and students to advance community resilience and student learning through collaborative, course-based projects.
Call for Proposals: 2020–2021 RCP Partnerships
The Resilient Communities Project (RCP) is accepting proposals from local government agencies in Minnesota to be an RCP partner for the 2020–2021 academic year (September 2020 to August 2021). Partners benefit from applied research and technical assistance on one or more locally identified projects that advance community resilience to economic, social, environmental, or technological changes, provided by students and faculty at the University of Minnesota from a variety of departments and disciplines.

Check out next year’s projects, and don’t forget: There’s still time for your community to apply for a partnership with RCP beginning this fall!
Spring Semester Student Reports and Presentations Now Online
In lieu of our annual end-of-year celebration to share the work of our students and community partners, this year RCP recorded students’ final Zoom presentations from the spring semester for your viewing pleasure! Student projects ranged from identifying options for cities to combat the opioid epidemic to envisioning how a suburban transit hub could be transformed to link transportation modes and improve mobility. Final reports from each project are also available.
