Disaster Dogs is a student-led organization within the College of Public Health’s Institute for Disaster Management. This group is composed of undergraduate and graduate students from a variety of degrees and backgrounds. They meet monthly to discuss current and past disasters to learn from and better prepare for future events and learn and practice hands-on skills. They also collaborate with various partners, within the campus, local community, and beyond, to explore various roles within the disaster and emergency management field and facilitate professional relationships.
Meetings are held on Wednesdays each month from 6:00-7:30PM. Meeting locations are determined by that month’s activity and can alternate between the Institute for Disaster Management located on UGA’s Health Science campus and UGA’s main campus. Visit the student involvement page for all upcoming event information.
