Our RAP Community
Students and faculty of RAP come together through interdisciplinary inquiry to address issues of sustainability.
Students share office space in our RAP trailer during their initial years of the program. Courses are team taught by natural and social scientists who together develop transdisciplinary frameworks for understanding the dynamics of social-ecological systems. Students self organize reading groups.
Every other Wednesday students and faculty meet for ALL RAP Seminars where students present about their research and guest speakers present on special topics.
Our faculty and staff work with each RAP student on an individual basis to provide feedback and guidance.
Each year our community gathers for a one-day special retreat featuring an invited guest speaker. We explore a special topic relevant to resilience and adaptation and chart the course for future program developments.
Together our community explores the challenges of doing integrated research in ways that provide meaningful insights to decision makers at the local, regional, national, and international scales.
