Poll
  • How many emergency management practitioners (non-academic) are in the audience?
  • How many of you engage students and/or faculty in helping you support your emergency management needs and goals?
  • How many faculty are in the audience?
  • How many of you currently encourage your students to support emergency management practitioners as part of your classes?
academia and emergency management
Academia and Emergency Management
  • The emergency management community is increasingly seeking support for a variety of services
  • Identified needs
    • Experts who are familiar with the latest advances in technology and science and can successfully apply that experience in the field
    • Experts who are capable of working in a collaborative environment and who can successfully engage a variety of stakeholders
    • Organizations with the capacity to support projects on a variety of scales
    • Tool (GIS and others) experts
the polis center
The Polis Center
  • Applied research center at Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis
  • Formed in 1989
  • Over 300 projects
  • Strong collaborative emphasis with academia, private sector, and public sector entities
  • Multiple opportunities for internships
the polis center6
The Polis Center
  • Polis engages in a diverse range of projects but has particular expertise in applications of geospatial technology in emergency management.
  • Examples
    • Expertise in use and application of HAZUS-MH and other hazard modeling tools
    • Development of dozens of mitigation plans
    • Workshops conducted in nearly every state

  • University partners
    • Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis (The Polis Center)
    • Southern Illinois University Carbondale
    • Augustana College
    • University of Wisconsin - Madison
    • University of Minnesota – Duluth
  • Multiple private sector partners
pdm projects
PDM Projects
  • Wisconsin, Illinois, and Minnesota
    • All hazard risk assessments either have been or are in the process of being conducted in each state.

  • Detailed plans have been developed for all of the counties
  • Local data collected as part of this effort is the best in existence
