MetadataShow full item record
The University and Agency Partnership Initiative (UAPI) is a cornerstone element of the CHDS mission of serving as “the Nation’s Homeland Security Educator.” Its mission: facilitate educational collaboration among institutions and agencies to support development of academic programs that enable a professional workforce and promote critical thinking in homeland security. The Initiative’s primary outcome is a sustainable network of university partners delivering the highest quality academic experience for students in homeland security and related elds. Leveraging CHDS materials and expertise, UAPI provides support to partners launching homeland security programs, helps prevent redundancy in curriculum development, and encourages partners to improve and add to the curricula that already exists. In addition, UAPI organizes national and regional events that enable cross-institutional information exchange and encourage practitioner engagement with the broad capabilities of academia. The 10th Anniversary Homeland Defense & Security Education Summit, held in March 2017 in partnership with the DHS Office of Policy and hosted by George Mason University, is the premier example of UAPI’s effort to connect people and ideas. The outstanding papers that comprise this special issue of Homeland Security Affairs represent a sample of the depth and purpose of research across the Homeland Security enterprise.
