ABOUT THE COLLABORATORY
The goal of the Rochester Institute of Technology’s (RIT) interdisciplinary Collaboratory for Resiliency and Recovery (CRR) is to provide integrated information and decision support capabilities to the private, public, and government entities, with the ultimate goal encompassing all communities worldwide. Through integrating resiliency principles, decision support technology, and incident response capabilities, the CRR will increase a community’s ability to prepare, respond, and recover from disasters. The mission is to provide communities with the highest level of all-hazards information analysis, fusion, and response support to maximize the resiliency of communities against catastrophic events, disasters, and other emergencies. The Collaboratory provides an administrative structure where RIT faculty and students can pursue scholarship and leverage educational programs that focus on the resilient community, from both an operational and human need standpoint.
