Teams Preparing For 2012 Patterson School Simulation

February 24, 2012

Teams of student diplomats and journalists are preparing for the annual Patterson School of Diplomacy and International Commerce 24-hour crisis simulation.

On Friday, Feb. 24, 2012, from about 2 p.m. ET, this site will serve as one of the news outlets for the simulation, in which graduate students from the Patterson School are confronted with a specific international crisis scenario and must handle the evolving situation as student journalists from the School of Journalism and Telecommunications portray the international press corps, reporting and editing dispatches on the developments.

The diplomats will be led by Patterson School Prof. Robert Farley and will be based in several offices in the Patterson Office Tower. The journalists will be led by Prof. Kakie Urch and Prof. Scoobie Ryan and will be based in the Room 10 newsroom in the Grehan Building.

The simulation coverage on this site runs until about noon on Saturday, Feb. 25.

At 2 p.m., it is game on, amigos.
