New Course: CMM393 Crisis, Risk, and Disaster Communication

The Spring 2021 schedule of classes should release soon, and on it will be one new Communication class: CMM393 Crisis, Risk, and Disaster Communication, taught by Jack Harris.

Crisis, Risk, and Disaster Communication acquaints students with the fundamentals of crisis and disaster communication and focuses on the broader collaborative and stakeholder environment in which crisis and disaster communication takes place. Students will develop an understanding of the fundamentals of crisis and risk communication and the importance of stakeholder engagement and community collaboration for communicating about crisis, risk, and disaster. Dr. Harris is active in disaster planning, response, and recovery as co-chair of a county Community Organizations Active in Disaster collaboration (COAD), with a state VOAD, and as a member of a local emergency management planning council. His research and writing focuses on organizational resilience, long-term recovery after disaster, and cross-sector collaborations for solving complex public problems.

Check newpaltz.edu often to see when the Spring 2021 schedule of classes releases. Once it does, start making your desired schedule and set up a time to meet virtually with your advisor.
