This workshop provides information about emergency management (EM) and the benefits of and resources available for integrating EM degree programs and EM course offerings at institutions of higher education. It is a facilitation-driven workshop focused on creating an Action Plan to be applied within each participant’s academic department. During the session, participants will be inspired to see the importance of EM and will create an Action Plan that they can use, along with a toolkit of additional resources that will be provided, when they return to their schools to increase their school’s EM-related offerings.
• Examine the benefits for an institution and community provided by EM-related offerings.
• Construct the process for creating a new certificate or degree program in EM.
• Estimate and perform a needs assessment based on the size and scale of course offerings.
• Describe the mutually beneficial relationship between an institution of higher education and the community it serves with regard to EM.
• Assess the cost and revenue impact associated with implementing EM program offerings.
• Discuss where EM courses can fit within an existing college curriculum and department structure.
• Develop cost-effective staffing strategies for initiating EM programs.
• Create a marking approach suitable for EM programs within their communities.
• Identify opportunities particular to minority-serving institutions expanding their EM offerings.
• Create and practice an action plan customized to implementing EM course offerings at their institutions.
