Arizona Institutes for Resilience (AIR) General Support
Arizona Institutes for Resilience: Solutions for the Environment and Society (AIR) coordinates interdisciplinary groups of faculty, students and projects across the University of Arizona’s campus to explore and develop solutions with campus and community partners that will serve human and natural communities across the globe. Further, AIR builds a robust web of environmental connections across colleges and departments that collectively make up Arizona Environment.
AIR includes many centers, institutes and programs that work together to build a “Roadmap to Resilience,” drawing on the expertise of many colleges and departments to promote partnerships and interdisciplinary activities, including the Carson Scholars & Liverman Scholars programs. Looking to the future, AIR will help individuals, businesses and communities manage risk and find opportunities associated with solving the climate crisis.
The Carson Scholars Program is committed to building a network of graduate students and faculty devoted to furthering their capacity to communicate their work to the public and decision makers through training in writing, media, and outreach.
Connecting to place, community, and one another, Liverman Scholars participate in an experiential program to become the communication leaders and problem solvers of tomorrow.
