About the Climate Resilience Academy

The needs of modern society are complex, and the demands and required knowledge bases within organizations evolve rapidly. Guided by its four aspirations (Hemispheric; Excellent; Relevant; and Exemplary), UM is evolving to meet these inter-connected needs – via engaging research, education, and service. The concept of an “Academy” is being developed at UM, to provide a new flexible, interdisciplinary organizational structure that complements and supports UM’s existing strengths. This structure is expected to advance UM as a hub for inter-disciplinary research, education, and community engagement.
