The MCNY Community congratulates Matthew Khaled, BPS’04, MPA’05, Emergency and Disaster Management alumnus and MCNY Adjunct Professor on his nomination to City and State’s Above & Beyond: Innovators 2022 Power List!

Alum and Professor, Matt Khaled, MPA/CEM teaches Constructive Action in MCNY’s Emergency and Disaster Management program. Matt also works for PSE&G as the Emergency Preparedness Lead for Gas. He has been detailed to support Enterprise-level COVID-19 planning and facilitated the development of a Pandemic Storm Plan for the New Jersey and Long Island service territories. He is also consulting tribal governments on Pandemic planning and adapting re-entry procedures.

City & State’s inaugural Above & Beyond: Innovators list recognizes the transformative work that leaders in government, business and the nonprofit sector have done to improve the lives of New Yorkers across the state. While their perspectives may differ, each individual on this list keeps innovation at the top of their minds.

Matthew Khaled initially planned to pursue a career in human resources recruitment. But after speaking with the first program director for emergency management at the Metropolitan College of New York, his mind was changed.

“I didn’t realize that there were all these systems and people and processes that were in place to help people after an emergency – and I was just completely enthralled,” recalls MCNY’s Matthew Khaled.
