The University of Georgia Crisis Communication Coalition (CCC) is a program of the C. Richard Yarbrough Professorship in Crisis Communication Leadership.
The goals of the CCC 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 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 CCC and contribute to the discussion via CCC-curated blog posts.
This website is intended to serve as a resource for academics, public relations practitioners and journalists. Interested parties can turn to Dr. Bryan Reber and other members of the CCC to serve as expert sources and provide thought leadership on issues related to crisis communication. Academics and practitioners will find a variety of resources that serve as valuable reference for practices including both seminal and recent crisis communication research and takeaways.
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.
