“Saving the Planet with Indigenous Knowledge” brought together experts from across FSU, including the FAMU-FSU College of Engineering and its RIDER Center, the College of Social Work, the Stoops Center for Communities, Families, and Children and the Native American and Indigenous Studies Center. . .

The College of Social Work and Stoops Center for Communities, Families and Children have been a conduit for interdisciplinary research and projects across Florida State’s campus and across local and regional communities to promote collaboration targeting recovery and resilience, including several years of work with the College of Engineering and RIDER Center.

“Our college and center make it our mission to support the most vulnerable populations who need it most during times of crisis like natural disasters,” said Ellen Piekalkiewicz, director of the Stoops Center. “We hope to continue connecting with our Indigenous and local communities to share our knowledge and be mutual means of support.”
