Tulane University Disaster Resilience Leadership Academy

At the Tulane University Disaster Resilience Leadership Academy we don’t just prepare communities to manage disasters— we partner with them to address the root causes of vulnerability. The Disaster Resilience Leadership curriculum applies a perspective of assessing people within their environments to emphasize the human element of disaster management, preparing graduates to better mitigate, adapt, prepare for, and manage disasters. The only program of its kind driven by social and environmental justice, both the Disaster Resilience Leadership Master’s degree and graduate certificate teach core competencies that provide interdisciplinary knowledge that bridge the gap between logistics and people to help build resilient communities.

We strive to collaborate with communities to affect change through hazard mitigation, adaptation, grassroots development, disaster recovery program development, mental health support, and more. The program, guided by the US National Disaster Recovery Framework and the Sendai Framework, takes a multidisciplinary, systemic approach to disaster management—building strength in communities at the fundamental policy level so if human-made or natural disasters strike, those affected are prepared and supported with dignity.
