UAPI Factsheet (pdf)

The University and Agency Partnership Program, or UAPP, brings together institutions nationwide dedicated to advancing homeland security education. This effort seeks to increase the number and diversity of students receiving homeland security education, accelerate the establishment of high-quality academic programs, and provide opportunities for collaboration that create an intellectual multiplier effect that furthers the study of homeland security.

The Naval Postgraduate School Center for Homeland Defense and Security (CHDS) makes available through the partnership its curriculum, distance learning technology, Homeland Security Digital Library, and all other resources. In return, partners share their curriculum and specialized expertise with the UAPP partners. This provides a cost-effective way to educate thousands of students beyond the NPS campus by reducing the time and resources required of universities and agencies having to build their own curricula and programs from scratch. It also brings synergy to addressing critical research issues, accelerates the development of the homeland security academic discipline, and more rapidly serves knowledge to support the nation’s security efforts.
