Professor Mangeri is a leader in university outreach efforts to extend higher education opportunities to members of the military, business continuity and emergency management fields. His encouragement as a professor has been demonstrated by his presence at conferences, meetings, and exhibitions across the nation. He has tirelessly supported students, the Epsilon Pi Phi Honor Society, the International Association of Emergency Managers and the International Association of Fire Chiefs, ASIS International and members of all branches of U.S. Armed Forces. His foresight in bringing the AMU message to DRJ is on the cutting edge of bridging the gap between business continuity and emergency management through higher education and service to others.
Specifically, his best practice is taking courageous steps to bridge business continuity and emergency management through higher education both in his classes and in his outreach efforts.
