Hurricane Resilience Research Institute


The Hurricane Resilience Research Institute (HuRRI) is a multi-state, multi-organization national center of excellence in resilience advancing our nation's ability to mitigate, assess, predict, protect, educate, and recover from hurricanes and severe storms for the purpose of creating and sustaining resilient communities. The mission of HuRRI is to serve as the premier resource for envisioning, promoting and institutionalizing a hurricane resilience culture, knowledge, solutions, and tools.

The main goal of HuRRI is to change the paradigm from wait-and-pay to system-wide anticipate-and-accommodate as a framework for hurricane and severe storm resilience.

The six founding institutions of higher education in HuRRI are:

Louisiana State University

University of Miami

Texas Tech

University of Texas Tyler

University of Florida

University of Houston
