Emergency preparedness has always been a critical aspect of governmental policy at the federal, state and local levels. The Rutgers Institute for Emergency Preparedness and Homeland Security was established to play a national and international leadership role in developing and implementing initiatives to protect the lives, health, and well-being of individuals and populations of our state, our nation, and the world. The institute brings together experts from the broad spectrum of disciplines, schools, departments, and centers that exist across the statewide campuses of Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey–and with federal, state, national, and international partners in the public and private sectors–to address all aspects of emergency preparedness, disaster response, and homeland security. Experts at the institute, engaging and employing the extensive resources of Rutgers and uniting with our public and private sector partners, are available to consult in a variety of areas: health care (medicine, nursing, pharmacy, and allied health professions in inpatient, outpatient, and institutional settings), behavioral health care (psychology, social work, and neurosciences), public health, emergency medical services, emergency management, law, public safety, criminal justice, homeland security, engineering, transportation science, mathematics, computer science, pharmacology, drug development, exposure science, linguistics, business, political science, government, planning, and public policy.

The Institute for Emergency Preparedness and Homeland Security is a universitywide multidisciplinary enterprise of Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, spanning all of its schools and centers to provide opportunities for collaboration, cooperation, and consultation with subject matter experts in a wide variety of disciplines through a facilitated single point of entry. If you are a member of the Rutgers community or one of our partners performing important work in areas related to emergency preparedness and homeland security, we invite you to become engaged in our institute. 11 attacks in New York and Virginia, the concept of emergency preparedness has been expanded to include the task of homeland security — protecting the United States from terrorist-caused disasters. June 12, 2014 Rutgers University formally launched a new institute last week to address emergency preparedness, disaster response and homeland security issues.

The Rutgers Institute for Emergency Preparedness and Homeland Security (IEPHS) encompasses new and established programs at the university that aim to protect people and property in the event of manmade or natural emergencies. The new institute will collaborate with several Rutgers-led federally funded research efforts, including the Department of Homeland Security center of excellence for Command, Control, and Interoperability Center for Advanced Data Analysis (CCICADA); and a National Institutes of Health center of excellence that develops drugs to counter chemical terrorism, called CounterACT.
