Tribal Management and Emergency Services Certificate
Tribal management and emergency services provides an in depth cross-section of the tribal management and emergency services profession.
Currently there are 570+ recognized U.S. Tribal Nations. Each of these nations possess inherent sovereignty and rights of self-governance. However, tribal nations are expected to comply with federal emergency and disaster laws and regulations in order to obtain federal assistance. Federal emergency and disaster laws and regulations are complex and require tribal nations to cooperate with local, state, and federal governments.
This complex system of administration presents many challenges for Native Governments, particularly when faced with natural or man-made disasters that threaten tribal lands and interests. These threats to tribal communities are often compounded by a lack of resources existing in reservation populations. Understanding the complex legal, historical, and cultural issues affecting tribal government management and provision of crisis response is essential to provide routine and emergency services to native communities.
The certificate requires 15 credit hours of the following with grades of C- or better.
