Disaster Response

Motivated by the tragic events surrounding Hurricane Katrina, Tulane University created innovative educational and research programs centered around disaster preparedness and response. These initiatives have already been put into action following the devastating earthquake in Haiti and, closer to home, the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. 

How are Tulanians helping vulnerable communities prepare for and cope with disasters? Here are just a few examples.
