Within the higher education community, there is increasing awareness of the need to plan for more frequent occurrences of natural hazards and the effects of climate change. Many institutions are recognizing the operational and financial risks posed by these threats. Case studies at the University of Christchurch, Canterbury, and The Ohio State University demonstrate the value of a campus plan for guiding decisions around resilience. Incorporating resilience planning into the campus planning process provides an opportunity to engage key stakeholders to address a campus’s vulnerabilities, align resilience-related investments with the broad campus vision, and ensure the long-term viability of the institution.
