Joint Simulation Exercises

Joint Simulation ExerciseEach spring semester the Political Science department conducts a role-playing exercise involving multiple classes over a three-day period. During the simulation, students from each class take on roles charged with various responsibilities to produce multiple products, assessments, statements, and decisions. One class takes on responsibilities of the American teams, while other classes are the Middle Eastern, European, and United Nations teams.  The teams are further organized with students given their responsibilities within their teams for specific roles such as:  National Security Advisor, Intelligence Director, Foreign Minister, Speaker of the House, etc. All classes participate simultaneously as the simulation takes place during regular class time. On the first day, students meet throughout the day to develop their team’s internal operation procedures and assess the initial situation. Tuesday, students deliver written advice to their executives and make public statements as they try to determine key information. On the final day of the simulation, teams deliver their final recommendations, decisions, and statements and hopefully resolve the crisis within the simulation.
