Abstract:

Institutions of higher education have underdeveloped emergency management programs despite academic research, industry surveys, and guidance from the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the Department of Education. This research set out to discover what recurring issues are commonly identified in higher education emergency management programs. These issues tended to fall into three broad categories resources, planning, and engagement. An exploratory case study was then conducted on Oregons Campus Resilience Consortium to see how this proposed model could address repetitive issues. The research found that Oregons program is poised to strengthen continuity, communication, and collaboration among institutions across the state. Implementation concerns were identified.
