Midwest City, Okla. – Rose State College has launched two new course offerings in emergency management. The courses highlight emergency management preparedness and emergency management response and are being led by new adjunct professor Jackie Wright of the Oklahoma Office of Emergency Management.

 32 students are currently enrolled for the emergency management classes.

“Preparedness and having a pre-set plan in the event of an emergency is something we intuitively know, yet how many of us actively do something about it,” commented Mark T. Tippin, Ph.D., Dean of the Business and Information Technology Division at Rose State. “These courses provide a firm foundation to understand disasters and will give students a focus on the opportunities to support our communities in the future.”

Students can choose from classroom or online delivery for the emergency management coursework. Both options include reading assignments, group participation, research projects, and self-checks throughout the course.
