The goal of the Rochester Institute of Technology’s (RIT) interdisciplinary Collaboratory for Resiliency and Recovery (CRR) is to provide leadership in community- focused resilience by applying technological systems, policy and engineering expertise to catastrophic event management. By integrating resiliency principles, systems and decision support technology, and incident response capabilities, the CRR supports a community’s capability to prepare, respond, and recover from extreme and unexpected events.


To provide the community at large with the highest level of all-hazards information analysis, fusion, engineering, policy and response support to maximize resiliency against catastrophic events, disasters, and other emergencies.


  • Combine local knowledge with private, public, and government entities to establish and maintain resiliency metrics and improve the  community’s ability to mitigate and absorb disaster event effects
  • Plan and coordinate with appropriate federal, state, and local assets to provide continuous analysis and evaluation during a disaster event
  • Address community resiliency from an all-hazards approach including fire, flood, snow and ice, pandemic, terrorism, and other emergency incidents
  • Provide integrated information fusion and decision support center within the National Response Framework on a local, state, and national level
  • Integrate emerging policy within community resiliency needs
