The Crisis Communication Think Tank (CCTT) is a crisis research and practice thought leadership group. The invited CCTT members collaborate on various projects and attend a yearly event, sponsored by the C. Yarbrough Professorship in Crisis Communication Leadership, the Center for Health and Risk Communication, the Georgia Athletic Association Professorship in Grady College, and the Hearst Visiting Professionals Fund at the University of Georgia.
The CCTT aims to build collaborations among researchers, practitioners and educators both in and outside the U.S. The overarching goal is the continuation of crisis communication science and practice through dialogue on emerging topics and the co-creation of evidence-based advice for next-generation crisis research and practice.
