Emergent Crisis Management:
Experiential Workshop for Campus Leaders

Be able to quickly make informed and effective strategic and operational decisions that will define your institution for years to come.

This experiential workshop is designed for higher ed leaders who want to be ready to make key strategic and operational decisions during a crisis. This hands-on workshop features a crisis simulation through which you will learn how to:

  • Recognize a crisis and gauge the seriousness of the situation
  • Identify and build the right team to respond, and define each member’s roles and responsibilities
  • Lead a comprehensive response, while also managing the day-to-day operations
  • Make critical decisions in responding to the crisis
  • Ensure that your institution emerges stronger on the other side


Bring this training to your campus and learn how to avoid long-term mission and brand damage with our expert instructors, who collectively have 35 years of experience in higher education and 59 years of experience in the US Military. Their unique approach to this workshop is born directly from their extensive experience in training and mentoring senior army leaders in crisis action and execution.
