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. We accept proposals at any time, but our upcoming deadlne for projects to be considered for summer 2021 (June through August) is February 1, 2021.
