Emergency Leadership & Community Resilience
A Whole-Community Approach
The program is specifically designed to improve the leadership capabilities of those responsible for planning for, mitigating against, responding to, or recovering from emergencies. The certificate emphasizes leadership skills needed to effectively operate within and across multi-institutional environments prior to, during and post-incident. The program will benefit professionals working in the field of emergency management, persons who have assumed emergency management tasks in addition to their primary work functions, and those who wish to enter the growing field of emergency management. Students from public, private, and non-profit sectors will benefit from their experience in the program.
Formerly known as the Emergency Management and Homeland Security Leadership Program, the faculty have retailored the curriculum to focus more on leadership at the individual, agency and community level.
