Annual RAP retreat
Each fall, RAP students choose special topic relevant to resilience and adaptation and organize a retreat for faculty, students and alumni. The retreat provides participants the opportunity to examine the challenges associated with integrated research from multiple perspectives. The retreat is an exchange of ideas, a time to report internship experiences, a chance to catch up with each other on research and other activities, and plan activities for the academic year.
Each year the RAP retreat features an invited guest speaker and/or a group of distinguished panelists.
