"The events of September 11, 2001 forever altered America'۪s perception of its own vulnerability and focused the entire nation upon the immediate and urgent objective to secure itself in such a way as to prevent such a dire tragedy from ever occurring again.

The application of a sustained academic expenditure remains a critical necessity. Knowledge and understanding ''' through academic research and inquiry ''' is our nation'۪s best and most resolute endeavor."
