THE LEADERS IN HOMELAND SECURITY

On behalf of the National Guard Bureau, welcome to the Homeland Security Institute (HSI). The HSI's mission is to provide world-class, professional education to leaders and practitioners in homeland security and to ensure success during complex, multi-jurisdictional emergencies.

This is accomplished by collaborating with top educational institutions and interagency stakeholders. Participants are provided with the tools and concepts necessary to lead and make decisions during catastrophic events. Soldiers and Airmen are provided world-class military education and the opportunity to receive graduate-level college credit through the HSI's education opportunities.

The HSI, Harvard Kennedy School (HKS), Massachusetts Institute of Technology Lincoln Laboratory (MIT-LL), and Northeastern University's Kostas Research Institute interagency partners and civilian stakeholders manage several academic courses that provide the National Guard with a center of excellence in homeland security, leadership, and technology. These courses focus on emerging trends in homeland security and protection through in-depth analysis of numerous relevant prior incidents and the exchange of ideas and best practices.
