Enhancing research, education, and outreach

If you are a faculty member interested in expanding the broader impact of research, implementing a resilience-related service program, or incorporating resilience into teaching, ERI wants to hear from you.

The existence of ERI was a major factor in my decision to change career trajectories and move to IU, as ERI's mission is critical for translating basic research on climate change into actionable information for the public.
