In case you have not heard, I am filling in for Dr. Karen Shirer, Associate Dean for Extension Center for Family Development, while she takes some time this fall to tend to her health. While this situation was unexpected for both of us, I believe her leadership style is one where she has "well-insured" the Center to continue to thrive during her partial absence (she is working some so I can consult with her).
Resilience is all about being able to overcome the unexpected. Sustainability is about survival. The goal of resilience is to thrive.

Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have questions or ideas to move our Center forward during this interim time.
