Participate in this simulation to analyze a hypothetical situation in a group of 5 students and draft a response memo to the President with recommendations for a US response.

PLEASE NOTE:  The CIA Crisis Response Simulation and the CIA's Information Session have switched dates/times; the updated information is below.

*******************************

Recruiters from the CIA's Directorate of Intelligence (DI) office will host a Crisis Response Challenge event at UT. Students participating in the challenge will be divided into teams of 4-5 students. Each group will be given information on a crisis situation and each will have a period of time to analyze a hypothetical situation and create a response memo to the President with recommendations on how the U.S. should respond. These recommendations will be presented to the group and the Recruiters/Directors will provide feedback. The purpose is to duplicate a situation CIA Analysts would have to address in their jobs.

The Crisis Response Simulation provides opportunities to:

  • Improve leadership skills;
  • Work in dynamic groups;
  • Analyze unclassified data used by intelligence analysts;
  • Produce a deliverable under time constraint; and
  • Compile analysis into an oral brief.
