The Federal Emergency Management Agency continues to monitor the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as it relates to COVID-19. To mitigate the spread of COVID-19, the CDC is encouraging organizations to promote social distancing, hold meetings via videoconferencing, reduce non-essential travel, and adjust or postpone events and gatherings. We also continue to evaluate the local and national situation and will provide regular updates.

Students will be notified in advance concerning the status of their on-campus course offering.

We thank you for your understanding, and we invite you to visit our extensive catalog of Independent Study Courses as well as classroom courses available by virtual delivery.

Practitioner Recommendations For Emergency Management Collegiate Student Research Projects

The purpose of the Practitioner's Corner is two-fold. First is to create another way for emergency management practitioners to communicate their thoughts and ideas concerning collegiate-level hazard, disaster and emergency management courses and programs to the educators responsible for those courses and programs.

Solicited are volunteered short papers on such subjects as:


Submissions and questions should be electronically forwarded to the FEMA Emergency Management Higher Education Program at Papers offered for consideration will be selected and posted on the Higher Education Project website based on originality, unique perspective, clarity, and perceived usefulness to emergency management practitioners and educators. FEMA reserves the right to edit content.


Second is to provide a place where emergency management professionals can communicate their suggestions for emergency management student research topics.
