Student seeks volunteers for research study
Doctoral student from Northcentral University, Debra Shiflett-Picardi, seeks volunteers to participate in her research study as she works to complete her Ph.D. in Business Administration in Homeland Security, Leadership and Policy. The study is “Inter-agency Collaborative Governance in Emergency Management: A Qualitative Case Study.” The research questions being explored are: 1) How are collaborative governance standards applied to interagency relationship building to improve collaboration and support the DHS emergency management mission and objectives? 2) Why do failures of collaboration occur in interagency collaboration efforts? 3) What are the participant’s perceptions on collaborative governance as it applies to emergency management? Participation would include a 30-45 minute interview by phone, email, or audio file. Participation would be confidential and details will be provided to demonstrate how identity will be secured throughout the process. Those who are interested should email
and put “Research Participant” in the subject line.
