This Strategic Plan In Action event is part of the School of Earth & Environmental Sciences (SEES) EarthWeek 2023: "Transitions: Building an Informed Hope in the Face of Changing Climates." The Arizona Institute for Resilience (AIR), supporting the Grand Challenges pillar of the University’s strategic plan, turns science into actionable, community-oriented solutions.
Strategic Plan In Action events provide an opportunity for all students, faculty, and staff to engage directly with an initiative team to explore their project’s progress, collaborative partnerships, and impact on the campus and broader community.
