Integrating Emergency Management Education Into HSI Disciplines

The Emergency Management Institute (EMI), in partnership with the Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities, is hosting the E390 Integrating Emergency Management Education into Your Institution By-Invitation. This course was formerly titled, “Emergency Management Planning, Preparedness, Training and Education for Colleges and Universities.” The desired outcome and single focus is to achieve a more diverse population of emergency management (EM) professionals who reflect the communities in which they live and work.

This 2-day course is targeted for Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSI) Department Chairs of EM-related disciplines such as sociology, geography, public administration, or psychology. The primary goal of the workshop is to assist HSIs by providing information about EM and the benefits and resources available for integrating EM course offerings. It is an interactive workshop focused on creating an action plan to be applied within each participant’s academic department. Participants will discuss issues surrounding minority and minority-serving institutions of higher education and will begin the process ofentifying and overcoming institutional roadblocks to increasing their schools’ EM-related offerings.

The course will be held on the campus of the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s National Emergency Training Center (NETC) in Emmitsburg, Maryland – about 75 miles northwest of Washington, DC.

The course is scheduled to begin at 8 a.m. on Monday, March 26, and conclude at 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 27.
