Like many colleges funded by the U.S. Department of Labor's TAACCCT program, the goal of the Northeast Resiliency Consortium (NRC) (a Round Three grantee) was to enhance the capacity of colleges to accelerate learning, ensure that students attain industry-recognized credentials, foster innovative employer partnerships, use new technologies, and deploy robust support services. The NRC set out to address what resiliency means in times of crisis, change, and challenge, including finding ways for community colleges to innovate while simultaneously creating a highly skilled and resilient workforce across the healthcare, information technology, and environmental/utility sectors. One core strategy of the NRC was the launching of the Resiliency Competency Model, which is featured in this brief.
