Universidad Iberamericana/UNIBE is located in the geographical center of Santo Domingo, a 4,000,000 inhabitants Caribbean metropolis. UNIBE is expanding its campus by acquiring surrounding properties while trying to maintain some spatial coherence. The growing of our academic community is forcing us to plan ahead for sustainability issues related to transportation, traffic, parking, and adaptability to surrounding neighborhoods. UNIBE is currently ongoing through the process of updating its Strategic Plan for the following six years. R2P2 is an interesting exercise that could help us to adopt resiliency issues into the managing of our campus thus reducing our urban environmental footprint. A cross-disciplinary team was assembled for the first phase. It included graduate and undergraduate students and faculty from the School of Architecture, Research Advisors, the Campus Architect and Administrative Officials. The School of Graduate Studies coordinated the final report.
