March 3, 2017, saw the unveiling of the new Norwich University Center for Global Resilience and Security (CGRS), a research center of excellence dedicated to the advancement of the interrelationships between human resilience and security in the face of global challenges. CGRS is focused on climate change, water, energy, and infrastructure and their impact on resilience and security. The founding director is Tara Kulkarni, assistant professor of civil engineering.

At the launch event in Milano Ballroom, Distinguished Leader in Residence General Gordon R. Sullivan, USA (Ret.) ’59 (pictured) didn’t mince words about climate change, saying we either pay now or pay later. “It’s a serious challenge, and we can’t avoid it,” he said. “This, what we are talking about today, is a serious matter not to be simply wished away as mythology. It’s not a myth—it’s real.” The center’s abbreviated name, CGRS, bears General Sullivan’s initials. The CGRS vision includes creating a “society that is strong, healthy, and secure, locally and globally, in the face of a changing climate.”
