The Crisis and Disaster Management Group at Syracuse University is dedicated to better understand the dynamics that impact the ability of people, organizations, and systems to forecast, mitigate, prepare for, respond to, and recover and learn from crises and disasters.

Participants in the group include faculty from engineering, the social sciences, computer science, public communications, and law. In addition to carrying out research on topics such as physical and social resilience, risk analysis, decisionmaking, and geospatial representation, the group also provides training to the practitioner community which ranges from day-long workshops to 14-week credit-bearing classes.
