Success of an emergency aid effort is contingent upon having a strong, well-designed management structure in place. In order to achieve this, college and university leaders need to be able to articulate a clear vision for success, identify the essential staff and departments needed, and create agreed upon roles and responsibilities. By focusing on these areas, institutions can build or revise management structures to establish, expand, or enhance emergency aid efforts.
