Location Willard Conference Room, DePerno Hall
Presenter Patrice W. Hallock, Ph.D. Associate Professor and Interim Chair of Education
Description “Capacity Building” in the Schoharie Valley: Why SALT matters

What positive effects can happen in a community after natural disaster strikes residents who are ill-prepared?  How does a rural community respond, and what does “capacity building” look like to bring recovery to an area devastated by Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee?  These questions, and others, will be addressed by Professor Hallock, who is actively participating in the Schoharie Area Long Term (SALT) recovery process to bring renewal to the towns and people who live in the Schoharie river basin, from Prattsville to Esperance.
