USF Faculty member Elizabeth Dunn and the USF Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) mobilized 250 students, faculty, staff, and alumni to assist over 25 different governmental agencies and non-governmental organizations with the response to Hurricane Irma. 

Establishing partnerships ahead of time played an important role in being able to serve our community during a disaster. Students were able to take what they learned in the classroom and put it into practice.
