Disasters and extreme events pose complex problems for the state, nation, and world that are best addressed by combining multiple disciplines and professions. The mission of the Center for the Study of Disasters and Extreme Events is to provide a support system whereby disaster research capabilities at Oklahoma State University can be coordinated, matched with funding sources, and developed to produce information relevant to the citizens of Oklahoma. The Center seeks to facilitate effective collaborative research, particularly that which enhances community resilience and well-being.
