Stevens Event Explores Lessons Learned from Sandy

Stevens Institute and the Hoboken Historical Museum are partnering to host an event Tuesday on the Stevens campus to commemorate the one-year anniversary of Superstorm Sandy.

Stevens Institute will commemorate the anniversary of Superstorm Sandy Tuesday with a free community program that recollects life in Hoboken during the storm and emphasizes the lessons learned in its aftermath.

The program, "Hoboken One Year After Sandy: Lessons Learned About Preparedness, Resiliency and Community," is being jointly sponsored by Stevens and the Hoboken Historical Museum, which has a Sandy anniversary exhibit opening on Saturday evening.

Tuesday's program gets underway at 1 p.m. with a session titled, "After Hurricane Sandy: Lessons Learned for Bolstering Resilience." The two-hour afternoon session, held at Stevens' Babbio Auditorium at 6th and River streets, features a panel discussion with leading researchers and federal agency officials who will discuss valuable lessons learned from Sandy and the public policy developments made in the storm's wake.

At 7 that evening, select storm survivors and volunteers will share their own personal experiences during Sandy, emphasizing the community's response to the challenges posed by the storm at a session in Stevens' DeBaun Auditorium on 5th Street between Hudson and River.

Both events are free and open to the public, but because seating is limited, registration is required at www.stevens.edu/sandy.
