colleges & universities
The High-Stakes of Higher-Education
Colleges & universities are a microcosm of society -- essentially they are small towns and cities. Hospitals, sports teams, Greek life, food services, transportation and housing, all pose risks, making training and preparation essential.
Thought(s): Stakeholders, influencers and the public accept that crises happen, but they are less understanding when institutions are not prepared, and even less accepting of costly missteps at the outset of a challenge.
Our team is on campuses across the country as lecturers, academic partners and adjunct professors, from the Big 12 to Horizon League; we have a firsthand appreciation for the challenges facing leaders and faculty in higher education.
