Disaster Relief Management
"The online degree in Organizational Leadership being offered by the University of Louisiana System is a great example of how collaboration among institutions with differing strengths can work together to effectively provide a much needed degree program for our state's adult learners. Southeastern's concentration in Disaster Relief Management uses an interdisciplinary approach that draws heavily on the disciplines of communication, criminal justice, geography, and industrial safety. It is designed to provide the comprehensive preparation today's professionals need to effectively manage existing and potential disasters and to plan and implement proven relief strategies. We are pleased to be a part of this unique degree offering."
Dr. John Crain
