The Community Resilience Co-lab is one of the projects convened by UCI Community Resilience Projects.
The Community Resilience Co-Lab aims to build a stronger campus community response to the enduring and intersecting crises of environmental, racial, and social injustice. The Co-lab brings together UCI graduate and undergraduate students, faculty, and staff from across disciplines and departments to co-generate critical and collaborative shared space. We use the Co-lab to experiment with deepening connection, skills, and critical analysis related to these issues in ways that embody the values underlying the world we seek to create. A rotating planning team comprised of student leaders convenes the 2019 Co-lab.
The 2019 Co-lab aims to generate:
- A safe, collaborative space for campus organizers, faculty, graduate students and undergraduates who aim to create fertile ground for communal care, resilience, and liberation;
- Deepened and strengthened intellectual and community relationships;
- Increased shared analysis of the intersections among environmental, racial, and social injustice;
- An agile network to withstand and work with related challenges that arise here on campus; and
- Increased familiarity with concrete skills, tools, methods, and knowledge to liberate and support Co-lab participants’ commitment to communities and social justice.
Undergraduate, graduate and professional school students are welcome to apply to participate in the 2019 Co-lab. Check out the details below.
Staff and Faculty Involvement
During AY 17-18, the Co-lab was conceived and comprised of a core group of collaborators drawn from the staff leadership of various campus co-curricular education units, supported by the faculty advisory group of the UCI Community Resilience Projects. The 2019 Co-lab is ready to warmly welcome faculty and staff participation from across campus. Please email Abby Reyes at firstname.lastname@example.org to express your interest to get involved. Thank you.
