Higher Education Program

The FEMA Higher Ed newsletter is in summer hiatus. It will resume in fall of 2023.

The HiEd website will be updated later this year but is not going away! Some older materials may be moved to the NETC Library and will still be publicly available, but the website will continue to be the main hub for HiEd related information, resources, and the College List.

  • All materials published before 2021 have been removed from the HiEd website
  • If you are trying to locate a missing resource, please contact the FEMA Higher Education Progam
