Teaching a Class this Semester? Join RBD-U

In partnership with NYU, PennDesign and Columbia GSAPP, we are excited to launch RBD-U (Resilience by Design), which will host a two-day workshop this February in NYC. 

RBD-U is a collaboration amongst some of the former participants in the Rebuild by Design Hurricane Sandy competition working together to integrate resilience as a central tenet to university curricula. This workshop will be used to test a proposed course that teaches the fundamentals of resilience to undergrad and graduate interdisciplinary students. Learnings will be incorporated in future RBD-U programs. 

If you are a professor teaching a class this semester and would like to join us, contact
