From Valero Larry – Associate Professor of Security Studies, University of Texas at El Paso

The UAPI Homeland Security Workshop has been simply an invaluable experience. I have learned a great deal about homeland security as an academic discipline and the andragogy needed to be a successful instructor in a diverse graduate classroom of current and aspiring homeland security professionals. I am confident this workshop and its many resources will have a lasting impact on my own teaching and my university’s homeland security curriculum. The Center for Homeland Defense and Security more than lives up to its reputation as the leader in homeland security education-a tremendous national resource!
