join us in OCTOBER 2019
for the next challenge!


HSAC is proud to sponsor the Crisis Management Case Challenge program. This competitive series provides graduate students with the opportunity to:

  • Address real-world, contemporary crisis management issues

  • Learn from subject-matter-experts

  • Network with like-minded students from across the country

Teams will prepare a policy brief addressing a crisis management “issue/case”, and finalists will present their recommendations to a panel of subject matter experts. The top three teams will win cash prizes.

Recent catastrophic events, natural and human-caused, continue to test the crisis management capability, doctrine and policies of governments and institutions. The HSAC/Target Crisis Management Case Challenge seeks to foster an exchange of ideas, perspectives, and recommendations to better manage crises.

Allison Wilhite, Participant

"The HSAC Case Challenge is a great way to dive in to an extremely relevant topic for government, to practice policy writing and presentation skills, and to learn from experts in the field. It challenged me to think critically and creatively about how a city could best mitigate a crisis."
