The Coastal Resilience Center (CRC) is committed to increasing the representation of minority groups in the Homeland Security Enterprise (HSE), in emergency management, planning and engineering fields.

To meet this goal, the CRC is partnering with four Minority-Serving Institutions (MSIs) to create undergraduate and graduate programs to improve access to the education needed to pursue careers in these fields.

Prof. Ismael Pagán-Trinidad of the University of Puerto Rico-Mayagüez discusses the school’s engineering program and involvement with the CRC.
