Associate Prof. Lucy Arendt of the Cofrin School of Business will present “Death, dollars, and downtime: Why everyone should care about natural disasters” as the kick-off for this year’s Deans’ Lecture Series. Natural disasters in the United States are increasing in frequency and impact. Contrary to popular opinion, there are steps that we can take to mitigate the devastating effects of natural disasters, which include death, dollars, and downtime. Do you know which kinds of natural disasters are most likely to strike your community? Are you prepared to deal with them? Arendt will share findings from her soon-to-be-published book, co-authored with Prof. Emeritus Daniel J. Alesch and published by Taylor & Francis: Long-Term Community Recovery from Natural Disasters. During her presentation, Arendt will address the continuing recovery of New Orleans in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, nearly 10 years later. The presentation will take place from 3-4 p.m. Wednesday (Sept. 17) in MAC Hall Room 120. Refreshments and valuable information provided!
