Description

Tragic events on college campuses, including natural disasters, facilities accidents and violent incidents, have created a heightened awareness of the importance of a coordinated, multi-departmental campus response. An inadequate and untimely response to a campus crisis can lead to fatalities, damaged infrastructure, public relations challenges and damage to your campus' reputation. While the best preparation is conducting a simulation with all stakeholders on your campus, most campuses either do not have the time, effort, or resources to conduct a simulation or do not make the time to test the effectiveness of their plans. So, what can you do to prepare your campus?

Academic Impressions is presenting a unique event that will simulate an emergency situation that requires an immediate response and clear, efficient communication among key campus and community stakeholders.

This event will focus on the coordination efforts of emergency response teams through simulating a very hands-on crisis. Therefore, to maximize this opportunity, it is important to bring key players from your campus.

Each campus should send a team of at least four individuals, each from a different area within the campus.

Team members should be chosen from:

* Student affairs
* Communications
* Emergency management
* Campus safety
* Campus leadership

Additional members are invited to attend, up to a total of seven individuals per campus team. Please call (720.488.6800 x259) if you have questions about your group.
