Higher education researchers have begun using the construct of resilience to explore individuals’ abilities to recover from hardships and overcome stress. This chapter explores what new possibilities may exist for understanding resilience as a construct of student development theory. It discusses that the dualistic conceptualization not only creates intracommunity tensions but also poses serious challenges to possibilities for resilience-informed community building. Duoethnography is a research process by which two researchers come to understand self and society across differences. The ways in which notions of resilience connect communities across temporal and spatial locations signal an important turn student development theory has not yet recognized.
