Crisis/Disaster Leadership: Protecting People Around the Crisis

Disorderly protests. Hostage situations. Extreme weather. Violence on campus. It's impossible to control whether a crisis will happen at your institution. However, you can control the way you react to it and learn to handle it in a way that will protect your people and your institution or nation's reputation.

Our Crisis Leadership program will help you respond to crises effectively, develop protocols and practices that minimize the potential for future occurrences and inspire confidence in the long-term success of your institution, region or nation.

Strategies for a Crisis/Disaster

Crisis Leadership gives you critical information about proactive training and planning so you can implement effective crisis management systems in advance of a critical event. The program is designed by faculty from the Harvard Graduate School of Education and Harvard Kennedy School.


Crisis Leadership will provide you with:

  • The tools needed to diagnose and understand the event

  • Frameworks to help recognize critical distinctions between different types of crises

  • The ability to foster situational awareness and ensure appropriate accountability during and after crisis events

  • The skills to understand and manage both policy and operational concerns

  • A lasting network of higher education professionals whom you can call on for support
