About Us

Communities across Minnesota are constantly evolving in response to their unique local challenges and opportunities. The Resilient Communities Project (RCP) is a highly successful, cross-disciplinary program at the University of Minnesota designed to build community capacity to adapt and thrive in the face of changing economic, social, and environmental conditions. Our mission is to promote community resilience and student learning through collaborative partnerships between the University of Minnesota and local communities.

RCP provides research and technical assistance to eligible local government agencies—including cities, counties, and special districts such as watershed districts, port authorities, and school districts—by matching community-identified projects with graduate and professional students across the University, who work on projects for course credit. Projects are intended to advance local resilience, helping communities to adapt and thrive in the face of economic, social, and environmental changes, stresses, and shocks.

See RCP’s current request for proposals for eligibility and application requirements, or visit RCP’s website for more information or examples of past projects and student work.

RCP is a program of the Center for Urban and Regional Affairs (CURA) at the University of Minnesota. RCP was begun as an initiative of the Graduate Sustainability Education Network at the University of Minnesota, and received initial support from a two-year Discovery Grant from the University's Institute on the Environment.
