PSIRC: Penn State Initiative for Resilient Communities

Launched in January 2019, the Penn State Initiative for Resilient Communities (PSIRC) provides an environment of shared discovery where stakeholders, decision-makers, designers, and researchers come together to address local resilience challenges related to land, water, energy, and climate change in the context of flood risk in small, riverine communities in Pennsylvania and beyond. PSIRC convenes faculty, students, postdocs, and staff spanning multiple colleges, centers, institutes, and disciplines, along with a diverse array of external partners to address these challenges. PSIRC is generously supported by the Office of the Provost through Penn State’s Strategic Plan.

This collaboration provides a stable foundation to tackle the broad range of issues relevant to resilience and economic development in Pennsylvania river towns. Historically and culturally significant urban centers and agrarian communities in the Susquehanna River basin are facing increased risks of floods, resulting in economic, environmental and social stresses.

The poster includes a listing of faculty and graduate students associated with the Penn State Initiative for Resilient Communities (PSIRC).
