Abstract


As the profession of emergency management has matured, the roles and responsibilities of emergency managers  have  expanded,  new  technologies  have been deployed, and emergency management education grown and has become better connected to emergency management practice. This special topic coverage (in three parts) addresses many of the changes in emergency management education over the past four decades, including the expansion of academic programs for those preparing to enter the field, those transitioning from emergency response and other fields, and those moving into supervisory and management positions in emergency management and related organizations. It also addresses some of the issues that academic programs have encountered as they have developed and have found their places in academic institutions.
