A Symposium, to begin a dialogue on the challenges confronted in emergency management and to support the development of current and future emergency management practitioners as we move forward in a rapidly changing world. We are committed to changing the face of emergency management to be both more reflective of and responsive to all communities, particularly those that have been historically underserved. The world is changing. It has become both smaller and more interconnected. It is beset by continuing and emerging threats from our natural environment: weather, climate change, disease – as well as threats initiated by human agency. In this environment, the Emergency Manager is the centerpiece around which our communities are secured and kept safe.
Includes a Showcase of work by student researchers, funded by a Department of Homeland Security Scientific Leadership Award for Minority Serving Institutions grant.
