The Institute for Sustainability and Resilience (ISR) at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa aims to help Hawaiʻi meet our local and global obligations to environmental sustainability, with an emphasis on promoting well-being from the lens of community resilience. ISR provides a campus-wide focus for instructional, research and outreach programs relating to sustainability and resilience in Hawaiʻi, as lessons from our islands can help provide global solutions.

ISR fosters multidisciplinary curricular programs that empower students to meet the critical challenges of bridging local to global, problems to solutions.
