The Center is committed to improving security through education, and we strive to provide the individuals responsible for the next generation of security and development with real-world experience in their fields.
The Analyst Internship and Training Program is designed to prepare our interns for analytical positions within the development, defense, and diplomatic communities. This internship program attracts students and recent graduates from rigorous academic programs throughout the country, giving them the opportunity to learn through doing the day-to-day work of research and writing.
With our university partners, the Center has jointly offered accredited degree programs that explore the application of nontraditional academic disciplines to emerging national security challenges. Currently we are teaming with Boston University School of Medicine to provide a satellite training facility for the University's Master of Science in Healthcare Emergency Management. Students in the national capital region may take courses virtually or in person at the Center's facilities in downtown Washington, DC.
In order to bridge the gap between rebuilding Iraq’s education system for education’s sake and creating actual economic and social impact, the Center and its implementing partners are seeking funding to implement a post-conflict education and reconstruction program, the Iraq Technical Education Pilot Program (ITEPP). ITEPP is comprised of three phases that continuously support program students from their first day of online classes to their post-degree employment and entrepreneurship endeavors.
