Our Emergency Management Students
Our students are health care professionals, first responders, volunteers, new graduates, and risk managers. They work for governments, not-for-profits, hospitals, and large corporations. Some are disaster response volunteers looking for a new career. Others have significant experience in the field and are seeking a graduate degree to secure a new role or promotion. Together, they create a vibrant and diverse classroom where they learn from each other, challenge their assumptions and solve real-world problems.
