Department(s):

The Global School

Dean of The Global School, Mimi Sheller will participate in the upcoming Chronicle of Higher Education virtual forum on Innovative Interdisciplinary Programs on March 20, 2024 at 2pm EST.  

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.

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. 

Mimi will focus her talk on hazards and disaster recovery, including student research at our project centers, and the Community Climate Adaptation program at WPI.
