IAEM@UD is the University of Delaware’s student chapter of the International Association of Emergency Managers, a professional organization devoted to advancing the art and science of emergency management.

In keeping with the principles of a profession, emergency management blends theory and practice for addressing urgent social problems related to risk, hazard, and disaster.



Housed within the Disaster Research Center, IAEM@UD undertakes a number of educational and service-oriented activities in four main areas:

  • Contributions to the profession
  • Enhancing student education and professional development
  • Contributions to the national organization
  • Community service


Membership is not limited to emergency managers or disaster researchers- anyone with an interest in disasters, emergency management, or related issues is welcome to join.
