Given the power of the media, colleges and universities are more cognizant of the threat of potential crises. However, as much as institutions can prepare, the unexpected can still happen. As a campus leader, knowing how to act quickly and effectively in the wake of a crisis can protect your students and your institution’s reputation. 

About

Since relatively mundane events can quickly turn into crisis events, it is important to understand how to successfully plan for, manage, survive and recover from unexpected events such as disorderly protests, hostage situations and outbreaks of violence.

Crisis Leadership in Higher Education provides critical information about proactive training and planning so you can implement effective crisis management systems in advance of a critical event. Faculty experts in crisis leadership guide participants through a variety of concepts and scenarios, examining practical challenges ranging from natural disasters to emergent infectious diseases. The program identifies communication strategies and reviews techniques and protocols that can be tailored to a wide range of institutional circumstances.
