The Humanitarian Crisis Simulation is an immersive learning experience for students and working professionals where participants play the role of humanitarian aid workers or volunteer responders in a simulated international humanitarian crisis.

Registration is now open for this experience which will occur on May 15 to 17, 2020 in Hudson, Wisconsin.
