Resilience tested: A year and a half of ten thousand aftershocks

Resilience Tested is a companion to Shaken but not Stirred. It tells the story of the University of Canterbury (UC) following the earthquake on 22 February 2011.
The earthquake caused immediate evacuation of the UC campus and resulted in significant damage to many buildings.
The report serves two purposes; to retain an institutional memory of what was learnt during the recovery period, and also to share these learnings with other organisations in New Zealand and around the world.

The University of Canterbury has a vision of People Prepared to Make a Difference – in the language of our indigenous people Tangata tū, tangata ora.
