RCP-affiliated courses provide students the opportunity to apply skills to a project identified as a high priority for advancing community resilience and sustainability. Graduate and professional students and advanced undergraduates can participate in RCP by enrolling in an RCP-affiliated course (listed below), or by connecting an individual thesis, capstone, field experience, culminating experience, or directed study to an RCP project.

Students work with local government officials—and, where appropriate, other community stakeholders such as local businesses, nonprofit organizations, and local residents—to develop their projects. Because RCP courses work closely with the community to make sure the work is aligned with their needs, there is great potential for student work to be implemented. Contact RCP staff at rcp@umn.edu to discuss connecting your individual work to an RCP project!
