This chapter applies a crisis management plan to a specific type of crisis: the death of an international student. It explores the crisis from the view of accidental death, murder, and suicide. It identifies the stakeholders: institutional, community, and agrieved. It reviews specific actions that can be taken to reach a closure of the crisis.
