Brody notes 20 years of HRRC growth
on homeland security radio program


Sam Brody, acting director of the Texas A&M College of Architecture’s Hazard Reduction & Recovery Center, talked about the center’s humble beginnings and dynamic growth during a March 3 interview on “Homeland Security Inside & Out,” a weekly radio show hosted by David McIntyre, director of the Integrative Center for Homeland Security at Texas A&M.

The center, celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2009, began with one person in a closet-sized office, said Brody.

“Twenty years later, we’ve got about $4.5 million of external funding, 8 core faculty, 2 research units, two graduate certificates and 2 research labs that house about 25 students,” he said.
