Emergency Management Higher Education Project

A goal of FEMA is to encourage and support the dissemination of hazard, disaster, and emergency management-related information in colleges and universities across the U.S.  We believe that in the future more and more emergency managers in government as well as in business and industry will come to the job with college education that includes a degree in emergency management.  We also believe that in order to build disaster resistant and resilient communities a broad range of college students and professionals need courses that introduce them to hazards, risk, vulnerability, disasters, and what to do about them.

In support of this effort, the Emergency Management Institute in Emmitsburg, Maryland, in 1994 developed the Emergency Management Higher Education Project with the aim of promoting college-based emergency management education for future emergency managers and other interested personnel.
