Set in the modern South Pacific Islands, Decision Center is an educational interactive simulation that places students in a disaster relief scenario with a focus in aviation involvement. Students will either assume the roles of relief providers, pilots, or local authorities located in the affected areas. Within this dynamic environment, students must collaborate and respond to simultaneous crises as government institutions and independent organizations. Their choices will determine the level of their success toward the global effort. This program is in collaboration with the Center for Excellence in Disaster Management and Humanitarian Assistance.
