|Location: Emmitsburg, MD

National Emergency Training Center (NETC)
16825 S. Seton Ave.

The primary purpose of this symposium is to encourage and support inter-school dialogue on a variety of issues and topics related to hazard, disaster, and emergency management higher education, as well as to facilitate direct dialogue between the Emergency Management Higher Education Program and representatives of colleges and universities with emergency management programs to improve program quality. A secondary purpose of the symposium is to provide information to the faculty and administrators of emergency management collegiate programs that could be used in the development of new emergency management college courses and programs or in the modification of existing courses—akin to an “educate the educator” posture.
• Describe current issues, problems and potential solutions related to hazard, disaster, emergency management, and homeland security higher education.
• Discuss information which could be used to the development and quality improvement of new emergency management courses or programs or the modification of current courses or programs.
• Discuss recent changes to laws, policies, and regulations affecting emergency management.
• Discuss the latest developments in emergency management and homeland security research.
• Describe the skills, knowledge, and abilities graduates will need in order to build a more disaster-resistant and resilient nation.
Selection Criteria: Faculty and administrators with colleges and universities which:
In addition, a small number of participants are FEMA Emergency Management Higher Education Program materials developers and representatives of stakeholder organizations.
- Have a hazard, disaster, or emergency management academic program in place;
- Are investigating or developing a hazard, disaster, or emergency management academic program; or
