U.S. Department of Homeland Security Seeks Topic/Exercise Scenario Nominations

DHS has announced a call for topic/exercise scenario nominations for the 2016 National Seminar and Tabletop Exercise (NTTX) for Institutions of Higher Education, which will take place in October or November 2016. Nomination deadline is June 17. The DHS Office of Academic Engagement (OAE), in collaboration with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), sponsors NTTX as a series of campus-based events to test and promote campus resilience. Each event in the series includes workshops and an exercise scenario focused on a specific resilience-related topic impacting the higher education community. The first NTTX in 2014 featured a fictitious infectious disease outbreak, while the second event in 2015 featured a cyber security breach scenario.

Nominated topics/exercise scenarios should reflect campus resilience issues or trends that impact the higher education community and should also align with DHS core missions. You can send topic/exercise scenario nominations via email directly to OAE at AcademicEngagement@hq.dhs.gov and include the following subject line in your message: 2016 NTTX Topic Nomination.
