About the UW DMC


The University of Wisconsin-Disaster Management Center (UWDMC) has worked closely with experts recognized for their field experience to develop professional development activities for international disaster management and hazard risk reduction. The UWDMC goal is to improve the emergency management performance of non-governmental organizations, local and national governments, and international organizations.

  • Self-study courses on disaster and emergency management
  • A comprehensive, individualized diploma program
  • Training programs for refugee emergencies
  • Funding for research grants and training
  • An emergency settlement conference focusing on solutions and best practices
  • Conference papers, case studies, and other publications.
