From Paul Posner – MPA Program Director, George Mason University

I have found the Center publications and programs to be most useful to us at George Mason, as we stood up our own
homeland security/emergency management certificate program within our MPA program. I had the opportunity to come out for a week
and be part of a program where selected academics joined together to discuss creating special educational programs for the National
Guard. The materials, powerpoints, and in depth discussions were quite valuable to us as we work with the Guard to develop a program
here in Northern Virginia. One of the most valuable features is the network of first rate experts that are brought to together to
exchange notes and perspectives.
