Scholarship of Discovery
This study examined the perspectives held by college and university faculty regarding the risk and potential for emergency events to occur on their campus. The study also examined the faculty assessments of the extent to which they are prepared to respond to an emergency event. Most significant was the examination of the perspective held by faculty at public institutions of higher education in comparison to faculty at private institutions of higher education. The study encouraged the development of a culture of preparedness within institutions of higher education to best fulfill state and federal mandates while also proactively reducing the risk and impact of emergency events on college and university campuses.
