WHAT IS THE HOMELAND SECURITY INSTITUTE (HSI)?

The National Guard represents a critical national asset for the United States in responding to domestic emergency events. The National Guard's HSI is prepared to develop a greater and more efficient force by educating our Nation’s homeland security professionals. HSI fills this gap in professional military education and provides our military and government leaders with the tools to succeed in complex emergency situations.
