The Northeast Resiliency Consortium (NRC) brought together seven community colleges in 2013 to address the importance of teaching resilience. To do this work, NRC applied for, and was awarded, a $23.5 million grant from the U.S. Department of Labor’s Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College Career Training program. NRC together with Achieving the Dream developed the Resiliency Competency Model, and also developed the accompanying principles, guidelines, and tools for implementation. Version Two of the guide was published in 2018.
