The L. Douglas Wilder School of Government and Public Affairs is quickly developing a reputation as a premier venue for the study of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness (HSEP). The attacks of September 11, 2001 made an irreversible mark on public policy in the United States, while Hurricane Katrina reminded everyone that natural disasters cannot be overlooked. The HSEP program recognizes this dual nature and is designed to give students both theoretical and practical knowledge that will prepare them for: 1) private or public sector employment in the expanding area of homeland security; 2) private or public sector employment in emergency preparedness for natural hazards and security-related incidents; and 3) graduate study in social science or professional programs.

Virginia Commonwealth University and NBC-12 teamed up to create the series called "It's VCU" to showcase this urban university, located in the heart of Richmond. VCUs diverse students, faculty and programs, superior teaching, steady growth and groundbreaking research are shaping Richmond, the state and the region.
