February 1, 2013. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security ’s (DHS) Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP), and Office of Academic Engagement (OAE) are developing a web-enabled Campus Resilience (CR) system which will provide practical and immediately useable processes and tools to a wide array of campus communities. The CR system will be developed through targeted community engagement with six selected university and college campuses via the Campus Resilience Pilot Program (CR Pilot) . With a final goal of making America’s campuses more resilient, the CR Pilot must include these elements : (1) promote FEMA’s Whole Community philosophy, (2) draw upon existing DHS resources and also those originating from the Department of Education (ED) and the Department of Justice (DOJ), and (3) assist American schools to proactively assess and plan for major man -made or natural incidents.
