Institutions of Higher Education Caucus
The mission of the Institutions of Higher Education Caucus (IHEC) is to represent the emergency management issues surrounding college and university campuses in North Carolina. Although institutions of higher education are a part of the communities in which they reside, they take on special and sometimes unique considerations when assisting students, faculty, staff, and visitors in preparing for, responding to, recovering from, and mitigating against emergencies. The purpose of the IHEC is to provide emergency managers from institutions of higher education a voice on a local, state, and national scale to ensure government and other stakeholders address higher education needs.
