The Flood Alert Resiliency Team in the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering in the Henry M. Rowan College of Engineering at Rowan University will host a Day of Resiliency Symposium on Friday, June 16, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., in Room 319, Engineering Hall, Glassboro campus.

The event will feature speakers on storm and flood-related resiliency projects in the State of New Jersey, including at the Shore. Expected to attend and present are elected officials, planners, researchers, professors and others committed to promoting scientific, technological and policy advances in New Jersey. Among the organizations presenting are Atlantic City Electric, the Army Corps of Engineers, Rowan University, the New Jersey Institute of Technology, the University of Notre Dame, AmeriCorps and MBaker International. Keynote speaker is Charles Richman, commissioner of the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs.
