Launched in January 2019, the Penn State Initiative for Resilient Communities (PSIRC) provides an environment of shared discovery where people can come together to address local resilience challenges of small, riverine communities vulnerable to flood risk. Working with local stakeholders and decision makers, PSIRC provides a way to leverage the resources of Penn State to help make an impact for local communities. By bringing together faculty, students, postdocs, and staff from multiple colleges, diverse disciplines, and established centers and institutes, this initiative works towards addressing riverine flooding and other related challenges to build more resilient communities in Pennsylvania and beyond. PSIRC is generously supported by the Office of the Provost through Penn State’s Strategic Plan.
