Dr. Randall Cuthbert
Associate Professor of Emergency & Disaster Management at American Public University
Throughout my career, I would tell anyone who asked that the great opportunities in life began when I graduated with my bachelor’s degree, and I’ve never wavered from that assessment. Similarly, I attained my master’s degree to achieve advancement within the profession, but during that process, something unexpected happened; I began to see my participation in our society as something more than my own economic interests. I began to understand that I was making a contribution to our society as a whole and had some responsibility for making sure that happened.
