The Center for Emergency Management and Homeland Security provides a multitude of services ranging from traditional academic activities such as dissemanating research results through

  • presentations and

  • publications in trade magazines and peer-reviewed journals to

  • pro bono services, and

  • consulting work.

We actively facilitate the exchange of knowledge and expertise of researchers into the research field and vice versa through our HDxCC: Hazards and Disasters xChange Collaboratory. The goal of the HDxCC is not just to transfer research into practice but to foster cyclical thinking where practice informs research as much as research contributes to practice. 

The HDxCC offers students, practitioners, and academics creative solutions to common and new challenges in the emergency management and homeland security arena. The HDxCC encourages experimental, empirical as well as applied thinking.
