Equip yourself with the practical skills needed to prepare for and deal with crises during this five-course series in campus crisis management. As a higher education professional, you will likely find yourself playing a key role in these kinds of situations, regardless of whether it’s written into your formal job description. Our crisis management training helps you become more effective in that role, enabling you to contribute to and shape crisis management plans.
From natural disasters to student illness outbreaks, emergencies can happen every day. Being able to plan ahead, as well as respond when crises arise, can help minimize the impact on your students and your institution. You’ll finish the certificate program with the skills to deal directly with the crisis, stakeholders involved, and the media through an understanding of:
- Crisis management in schools and universities, including planning, prevention, response, and recovery
- Human relations skills across various educational settings
- Law in student affairs
In addition, the ability to customize the curriculum to your needs gives you the opportunity to further hone your skills in student development theory, administration, or organizational behavior.
The Campus Crisis Management Certificate is a companion to the student affairs in higher education master's degree. The credits completed as part of this certificate can be applied toward the degree after formal admission per University transfer policies. However, successful completion of the courses or certificate does not guarantee admission to the degree program.
