Center for Resilient Communities

Welcome to The Center for Resilient Communities (CRC)

The Center for Resilient Communities (CRC) was established in 2014 to address the social, economic and environmental issues that affect the resilience of communities in Idaho and the Western United States through the co-production of knowledge based on collaborative interdisciplinary research, and the development and application of social-ecological systems science. This mission is advanced by nurturing, coalescing, and enhancing critical mass in interdisciplinary social-ecological systems science. Learn more about CRC.
