Glen L. Woodbury, MA

While the volume of higher education curriculum has increased, three key thematic areas must be addressed as the baseline of knowledge for emergency management professionals: 1) hazard and threat science, 2) sociological and psychological considerations, and 3) prevention/mitigation principles.
