Resilience — the capacity and process of enduring, overcoming and being strengthened by life stressors and experiences of adversity.

The Center for the Science of Human Resilience (C-SHORE) is an intellectual research center at UCSB that brings together scholars from diverse disciplines from UCSB and around the world who study human resilience at multiple levels of analysis – genetic, biological, psychological, organizational, and societal. C-SHORE’s goal is to foster interdisciplinary collaborations, research, education, and community outreach, with the ultimate aim of increasing the scientific knowledge base relevant to human resilience, thriving, and flourishing.
