This tuition-free Chautauqua short course partially supported by the National Science Foundation will meet in midtown Manhattan on June 2-4 to provide a basic understanding of the inter-related challenges and issues associated with developing the level of disaster resistance necessary to manage major disasters of all types--from natural causes, terrorism, human error, and systems failure. The course will include in-depth discussions and presentations by visiting practitioners and policymakers on what academic institutions can do to foster disaster resilience.
