Build Resilience with Our Local Community (Ongoing)


As a twin-cities campus, one of the university’s greatest assets is its proximity to strong communities. Our history of climate resilience proves that time and again, we benefit from mutual support; this has also been true as each community has taken proactive measures to increase resilience to COVID-19. Though Champaign, Urbana, Savoy, and the University are independent entities, we are all immeasurably stronger when functioning as a unit. Our resilience strategies will prove stronger as well; for example, strategies to improve air quality and encourage pollinator-supportive plantings will be exponentially more beneficial should we leverage our combined resources.
