Emergency Management/Homeland Security Unity of Effort (UoE SIG)

Short Description:

The unity of effort special interest group (UoE SIG) was designed to bring practitioners and academics together from the homeland security (HLS) and emergency management (EM) disciplines. This SIG recognizes the vast intellectual overlaps between these two disciplines in the classroom and in the field regarding risk based approaches to preparedness, resilience and security. The UoE SIG aims to create collaborations between EM and HLS academics, policy makers and practitioners that explore how both disciplines can better understand the many complex and wicked problems that define today’s preparedness, resilience and security landscape. The UoE SOG will focus on development, and dissemination of basic and applied research of community and national preparedness, resilience, and security, the scholarship of teaching and learning in each discipline, and academic program development.
