ACADEMIC RESILIENCE can be broadly defined in terms of capacities such as persistence, creativity, emotional intelligence, grit, thriving, cognitive flexibility, agency, flourishing, adaptation, addressing social justice and equity, learning from failure and success, and overcoming adversity.

Claritas est etiam processus dynamicus, qui sequitur mutationem consuetudium lectorum. Mirum est notare quam littera gothica, quam nunc putamus parum claram, anteposuerit litterarum formas humanitatis per seacula quarta decima et quinta decima.

Dear ARC Friends and Colleagues,

All of us have been affected, personally and professionally, by the ongoing coronavirus pandemic as well as the heightened awareness and activism emerging in the US and around the world in response to incidents of racism and violence. These are times that call for extraordinary resilience on the part of our students, ourselves, our institutions, and our society.

The Academic Resilience Consortium stands with Black Lives Matter to oppose systemic racism, to grieve for victims of racial violence and police brutality, and to achieve justice and equity.

We send you courage and hope as we all navigate these waters, engage our resilience, and create new ways to care for ourselves and others.

- Abigail, Adina, Myrna, and Nic
