Disaster Science Operation Center

The Disaster Science Operations Center (DSOC) integrates critical decision support and disaster security access and opportunities across public, private, government, and academic sectors through student-centered experiential learning and applied research. DSOC is anchored by interdisciplinary operational collaborations at WKU between White Squirrel Weather and the Meteorology Program, Environmental Health & Safety, Public Broadcasting, and Athletics. Together, these units interface with Police, Fire, Emergency Medical Services, and Emergency Management for anticipated risk, incident management, and all-hazards monitoring and communications. A unique element of DSOC is our innovative undergraduate and graduate online certificate programs in Emergency Management Disaster Science (EMDS). Our EMDS programs offer students and professionals a robust co-credential for advanced career readiness and student success. DSOC professionals have expertise and experience in education outreach and safety training across all sectors. The DSOC hosts a collection of specialized services for notable agencies and industry partnerships . We specialize in weather intelligence, scalable weather and climate monitoring, client-specified hyperlocal forecasting, applied health and safety training seminars, mobile outreach technology, private industry research, and special-events monitoring.
