Crisis Communication and Basic Disaster Planning for the Research Administrator

Wednesday, July 27, 2016 - 2:00pm to 3:00pm

Whether it’s a natural disaster impacting your institution or a crisis triggered by research misconduct from a leading faculty member, you need to be prepared. The situation could be a tornado, flood, bombing, research misconduct, misappropriated funds, the scandal of the week or a scandal you are not aware of yet. This session will better prepare both administrators and researchers to plan for and deal with a variety of disasters and crisis communication situations.

You can’t rely solely on your institution’s facilities and communications departments. Your preparation, in conjunction with your institution’s other departments, can make a significant difference in the outcome of a crisis. You will leave with specific tools to assist in being prepared to respond to a crisis.

This is for “those who are Crisis Managers, whether they want to be or not,” because you still have a role in planning for and supporting the institution’s response. This session will give a broad overview and some specific tools.

Learning Objectives:

  • Provide research administrators with tools, techniques and a process for planning for and possibly dealing with disasters and crisis communications.

  • Learn from case studies and possible scenarios on how to plan, prepare and respond.
