The University of Georgia Crisis Communication Coalition is a program of the C. Richard Yarbrough Professorship in Crisis Communication Leadership.
The goals of the Coalition are:
- To provide a location for research, commentary and practical guidance concerning crisis communication leadership
- To serve as a resource for journalists seeking comment and analysis of newsworthy crisis events
- To educate both graduate and undergraduate public relations students on the origins and evolutions of crisis communication research and practice
The CCC consists of faculty members in the Department of Advertising and Public Relations at the Henry W. Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication who study crisis communication and related issues. Additionally, professionals who specialize in this field are invited to affiliate with the Coalition and contribute to the discussion via curated blog posts.
This website is intended to serve as a resource for academics, professionals and journalists. Interested parties can turn to Dr. Bryan Reber and other members of the Coalition to serve as expert sources on issues related to crisis communication. Academics and professionals will find the bibliography a valuable reference for best practices, as well as both seminal and recent crisis communication research.
This page is ever evolving and your input into how to make it more useful for you is welcomed. Included are former op-ed pieces as well as crisis communication tips and relevant research.
