Reflections from Crisis: A Phenomenological Study of the Texas A&M Bonfire Collapse
Treadwell, Katie L.; Lane, Forrest C.; Paterson, Brent G.
Journal of Student Affairs Research and Practice, v57 n2 p119-131 2020
The 1999 Texas A&M University Bonfire collapse killed 12 students and injured dozens. Response to this event involved a number of campus administrators, lasted for many years, and led to the emergence of new risk management standards. Nearly 20 years later, researchers explored how campus leaders experienced the tragedy and reflected on their role over time. The study analyzed personal experiences and lessons learned from 15 leaders who led the crisis response and recovery.
