LBJ School Hosts Crisis Simulation
Date: Friday, March 30, 2012
On March 30 and 31, 55 students, nine ambassadors and seven members of The University of Texas at Austin’s U.S. Army War College Fellows program participated in a crisis simulation at the LBJ School of Public Affairs.
Students were broken into seven country teams representing various countries and political entities from around the world with an Ambassador to act as mentor and a colonel or lieutenant colonel to act as military advisor. They were given a crisis scenario developed by the U.S. Army War College for use in its senior strategy seminar. Over the course of two days, the student groups negotiated with one another in the simulation.
