Campus Crisis Management offers a comprehensive approach to planning for both preventing a crisis and responding when one happens.
The authors explain how to use a "crisis matrix" to assess any crisis, determine its impact on the institutional community and identify points to consider in responding to the crisis. Administrators will be able to draw on this matrix to develop plans and responses appropriate to a variety of situations.
The book also:
The appendix covers postcrisis debriefing and provides a checklist of questions to consider.
No other book offers such a thorough presentation of the practical issues surrounding campus crisis management. It will help your campus address crisis management in a coordinated fashion.
