Disaster Management & Recovery at Wilberforce Univ

A NNSA Research Initiative

About Us

Founded in 1856, Wilberforce University can trace its origin to a period of history before the Civil War, when the Ohio Underground Railroad was established as a means of escape for all those blacks who sought their freedom in the North from the yoke of slavery, one of the destination points of this railroad became Wilberforce University. As the Underground Railroad provided a route from physical bondage, the University was formed to provide an intellectual Mecca and refuge from slavery’s first rule: ignorance.

The NNSA Research Initiative is a grant from the National Nuclear Security Administration to  Wilberforce University.  We are currently working to improve the technologies and methodologies used in Disaster Management and Recovery.
