The Johns Hopkins University
March 1, 1999
On April 16, 1998, Provost Steven Knapp and Senior Vice President for Administration James McGill established the Committee on Crisis Management to examine the current methods and approaches for handling such situations, and to make recommendations for a coherent and organized approach. The Committee s work includes, at least, the following:
1. An identification of the types of crises that might arise at an institution like Johns Hopkins.
2. A plan for dealing with all aspects of crisis management, including, but not limited to, physical security of people and facilities, public relations, leadership responsibilities, and communications, both internal and external.
3. Necessary steps to implement the crisis management plan.
Furthermore, it was suggested that the Committee should review crisis management plans at similar institutions, noting, of course, that the particular characteristics of Johns Hopkins will be considered in developing our plan.
