The Center for Homeland Defense and Security's University and Agency Partnership Program


Annual Faculty Development Workshop: June 2018

Save the Date. The 2018 Faculty Development Workshop will be held 11-15 June in Monterey. The call for applications will be sent out via the UAPI Forum in early February.

During the five-day workshop, there will be presentations from CHDS faculty on their approach to teaching core Homeland Security topics (including Introduction to HS, Intelligence, Technology, and Comparative HS). We also will have partner university-led discussions on new initiatives in HS education. Note that the presentations, while informative, really are opportunities for give-and-take conversations on key topics of interest to HS education.

CHDS will provide lodging and expenses (Sunday arrival, and either Friday or Saturday departure). Please note that participants will be responsible for transportation to/from Monterey.

The workshop will be a valuable opportunity to share and exchange information as we continue to mature the Homeland Security education field. If you have questions regarding the event or the application process, please contact Steve Recca (
