The UW Alumni Association has recently announced the lineup and opened registration for their free fall lecture series, Surviving Disaster: Natural Hazards & Resilient Communities.
Natural disasters like earthquakes, tsunamis, landslides and hurricanes threaten lives and livelihoods across the globe. This series will explore the latest developments in social and natural science helping us prepare for, respond to and survive environmental disasters, wherever they strike.
