An announcement on Post’s new Emergency Management & Homeland Security degree, beginning in January 2015, ran on Business Wire. The announcement explains that the program will provide students with a core understanding of the four phases of emergency management: mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery.

Work advice you may want to avoid
In an article for Summit Daily, Chris Szpryngel, Acting Dean of the Malcolm Baldrige School of Business, shares some examples of the well-meaning, but often misguided advice young professionals receive as they begin their careers. Szpryngel said that popular adages like “find the right fit” or “pursue your passion” are fine until you have to work to pay the bills or save money. He added waiting for the ”perfect” job often means missing many good or great opportunities along the way. This article was also syndicated in the News-Review and the Richmond Times-Dispatch.
Post sprint football hoping for big things this season
A preview of Post’s sprint football season was detailed in an article in the Waterbury Republican-American. The article noted the success Post saw last season, and the promise the team has this year. Head Coach Mike Mannetti referred to two of Posts opponents, Army and Navy, as “the class of the league”, but said he has a group that is capable of winning a league championship this year. Mannetti also said it’s very important that Post is returning several starters on defense, as well as sophomore quarterback Greg Volpe.
