In November 2017, the Center for Global Resilience and Security (CGRS) at Norwich University was awarded a $2,500 High Meadows Fund grant (supporting organization of the Vermont Community Foundation), to support the development of the mission, composition, role and responsibilities of the Resilient Vermont Network (RVT), housed at CGRS since 2017.
The grant allows CGRS to engage both the Norwich community of students, faculty, staff, and alums, as well as the interested stakeholders from across the state of Vermont as we seek to: 1. Identify critical ongoing functions and activities of RVT; 2. Solidify a structure and leadership plan for RVT; 3. Capitalize on new opportunities and priorities such as clean water, CGRS’s new Academic Resilience Collaborative (ARC), and the VT State Hazard Mitigation Plan (SHMP).
