Adelphi was one of the first higher education institutions to provide emergency management coursework. Shortly after the 9/11 terror attack in 2001, administrators decided to develop an introductory course in disaster preparedness for all incoming freshman.
In 2005 College of Nursing and Public Health faculty members, led by a disaster epidemiologist who was among the first responders at Ground Zero following the 9/11 attack, began to develop a full-scale emergency management program. Today this program comprises master’s, bachelor’s and associate degrees, as well as a graduate certificate.
