Researchers from different fields, including social sciences, engineering, and natural sciences, must work together to explore resilience and response to earthquakes, tsunamis, wildfires, and other earth hazards.

In the upcoming Virtual Forum, experts in related fields will discuss how universities have adapted interdisciplinary programs over the past decade to learn how to deal with natural disasters. Panelists will share insights from the response to COVID-19 and what remains to be improved.
