You’re invited to attend a virtual session for prospective students to learn more about the Schar School of Policy and Government and our graduate programs.
In the aftermath of the 1918 Spanish Flu, many—first responders, civil servants, scientists— were so fatigued by the pandemic that they tried to return to a period of normalcy as quickly as possible. This was a critical misstep. Lessons learned were lost and presented intensified challenges more than 100 years later with the surfacing of an emergent threat, COVID-19. Now, with the professionalization of emergency management as a field of science and community of practice, during the mid-1980s, public administrators are engaging and integrating activities that offer the nation promising news for continuity of effective response.
This session is ideal for students interested in the Schar School’s Master’s in Public Administration (MPA) and Graduate Certificates in Emergency Management and Homeland Security, Nonprofit Management, and Public Management programs, but all prospective students are welcome to register.
DATE: Wednesday, February 24, 2021 at 6:00 p.m. ET (Virtual Event)
