Governors State University’s College of Business and Public Administration (CBPA) announced today that it will offer a new research seminar course focusing on the Hurricane Katrina disaster. The 3-credit hour, graduate level course, "Hurricane Katrina: Multi-Disciplinary Perspective (MGMT 865-A)", will begin on Monday, September 12, meeting from 7:30 to 10:20 p.m. No prerequisites are required. Students must register for the course by September 12.

Dr. Akkanad Isaac, chair of the college’s Division of Management, Marketing, and Public Administration, and seminar instructor, devised the course while watching coverage of response management in hurricane stricken areas. Isaac believes the course will offer students an opportunity to conduct research and analyze the crisis as it unfolds.
