We Look Forward to Meeting You
I am pleased to welcome you to the Emergency Services Program at UNO. We offer a Bachelor of Science in Emergency Management, a Master of Public Administration with a concentration in Emergency Management, and a PhD in Public Administration with a concentration in Emergency Management.
A concentration in Emergency Management is also available as part of the UNO Bachelor of Multidisciplinary Studies program administered by the Division of Continuing Studies. Our program also offers a concentration, minor, and certificate in Tribal Management and Emergency Services, which to our knowledge is the only one of its kind in the country.
Our faculty and students value diversity in academic, research and community endeavors. The importance of serving the urban, state, national, and international communities by providing exceptionally educated and prepared professionals is our number one priority. Many of our undergraduate and graduate courses involve collaboration and participation with local, community, and state programs and agencies.
Our faculty are engaged in numerous national, regional and community boards and agencies. Public service and outreach is a critical part of our mission. Services are routinely provided to various organizations in the public, private, and non-profit sectors. We also serve tribal communities in fostering and provision of emergency services, and are proud of our partnership with the Tribal Emergency Management Association in provision of academic and advisory services for native communities.
We cordially welcome and encourage community partners, current students, alumni, and friends of the UNO Emergency Services Program to visit our offices, attend one of our community events, and collaborate with us in the semesters ahead.
