The Resilience Research Lab (RRL) in the Psychology Department provides ongoing educational and research opportunities for faculty and students, with a focus on resilience. We are interested in how resilience is defined, measured and it’s applicability to human development.  The RRL consults with various non-profit and governmental organizations that provide services for children, youth and families. The lab has partnered on local, international and cross-disciplinary research projects.    We have hosted symposiums, conferences and international guest speakers that bring together scholars, professionals and community members. We welcome the opportunity to collaborate with others interested in understanding resilience.
