JBS Crisis Leadership and Learning Center

The Crisis Leadership & Learning Center is a John Ben Shepperd Public Leadership Institute groundbreaking initiative that will allow students and others from all over Texas to participate in leadership-oriented, crisis decision-making, computer-assisted simulations – either onsite or online. The CLLC will also be used to teach a wide variety of leadership, ethics, and service-focused topics over the Internet.


The CLLC will feature 4-hour, crisis leadership-oriented, computer-assisted simulations. Participants will learn what it takes to make large-scale, impactful decisions under duress with very little time available. Participants assume roles of national and/or state leaders as they collaborate to solve large-scale crises. Potential simulations include national crises like the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis, the September 11 attack, or the 2012 Benghazi incident, and local crises, including severe weather, a natural disaster, or a local terror attack targeting infrastructure.
