Faculty Matters Magazine features disaster recovery efforts in northeastern Japan

Faculty Matters Magazine published an article (Summer, 2011) about recovery and relief operations following the 2011 Great Northeastern Japan Earthquake and Tsunami. Following is an excerpt from "Japan's unprecedented disaster" by Carlye Dash (2011):

High atop a bluff, Brent Duncan and his wife Penny watched as the Pacific Ocean overpowered the shoreline and blanketed communities along the northeastern coast of Japan. As surge after surge of water rushed inland, Duncan, a lead faculty member with University of Phoenix, knew the low-lying areas would be badly damaged.

When the devastating earthquake and resulting tsunami finally ran their course, hundreds of miles of Japan’s coastline lay devastated and tens of thousands of people were dead or missing.
