HSIs invited to attend emergency management course

The Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities (HACU) has partnered with The Emergency Management Institute (EMI) to host a course for Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs), titled E390 Integrating Emergency Management Education into Your Institution. The course is being offered, by-invitation only, to HACU member HSIs for department chairs of emergency management (EM) related disciplines such as sociology, geography, public administration, or psychology.

Travel and Lodging will be provided for participants of this two-day course, which will take place on March 26-27, 2012 at the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s National Emergency Training Center (NETC) located in Emmitsburg, Maryland.

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. The workshop will focus 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 of identifying and overcoming institutional roadblocks to increasing their schools’ EM-related offerings.

General Admissions Application (FEMA Form 119-25-1) must be submitted to the Admissions Office by February 13, 2012.
