A Presentation to the Greater Tampa Bay Association of Contingency Planners 31 August 2011 Paul Latham, FPEM, CHS Emergency Manager
Many colleges and universities across the areas hardest hit by Hurricane Katrina could no longer hold classes at their current facilities. The U.S. Department of Education came together with communities to welcome the displaced students and to get them enrolled in other schools as quickly as possible. In the wake of the tragedy, the main goal was to provide every student with a quality education. Tulane University Hurricane Katrina August 27, 2005 At the end of January 2006, the administration reported an estimated $90 to $125 million shortfall for the 2005–06 year. Tulane laid off about 2,000 part-time employees in September and October 2005, 243 non-teaching personnel in November 2005, 230 faculty members in December 2005, and another 200 employees in January 2006. Tulane eliminated six undergraduate and graduate programs in the Engineering School: mechanical engineering, civil engineering, electrical engineering, computer engineering, environmental engineering, and computer science, and also a bachelor's degree in exercise science. The university cut twenty-seven of its forty-five doctoral programs and suspended eight NCAA Division I intercollegiate athletic programs.
University of Maryland Tornado September 24, 2001 “Until 2001 September 24 we tended to look on tornado watch warnings as an exciting possibility to see something dramatic but harmless: after all, tornados never touch down in suburban Maryland. That all changed when an F3 tornado with winds close to 200 mph touched down on campus.”
University of Iowa Flooding 2008 University of Louisville Flooding August 4, 2009 “A dozen buildings on the school’s Belknap Campus suffered flooding damage. One of the most dramatic scenes was at the Houchens Building off Floyd Street, where the school’s admissions office is located. About 30 employees in the office had to be evacuated by the Louisville Metro Swift Water Rescue Team.” “A week's work of frantic sandbagging by students, professors and the National Guard couldn't spare this bucolic college town from the surging Iowa River, which has swamped more than a dozen campus buildings. At least three deaths in Iowa have been attributed to the flooding and storms that caused it, and 12 others have died in two recent tornadoes. “ "I'm focused on what we can save." University of Iowa President Sally Mason
Virginia Tech Shooting April 16, 2007 “The university first informed students via e-mail at 9:26 a.m., more than two hours after the first shooting” University of Alabama-Birmingham Shooting February 12, 2010 University of Texas Shooting Sept. 28, 2010 8:10 a.m. Shots fired 8:25 a.m. Sirens and alerts begin to sound 8:30 a.m. School on lockdown.
