Transforming University Engagement In Pre- and Post-Disaster Environments: Lessons from Puerto Rico

Peer to Peer: Towards a New Architecture of Relationships in Pre- and Post-Disaster Interventions


Time: 10:45 AM - 12:15 PM, November 19

Location: Student Success Center - Campus Center

While a lot of emphasis is put on “building back better” critical physical infrastructures, very little emphasis is placed on the  development of the deep multisectorial, multi level, multidisciplinary relationships that can ensure the sustainability of post disaster efforts. Utilizing examples from the ground, this panel explores current models for real engaged scholarship from “convergence” to the “science of team science”, that are centered around trust building, governance innovation, and collective ways to tackle wicked problems in the post normal science era of the anthropocene.
