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 inter-agency stakeholders. The HSI has developed programs of study by combining online and resident coursework. Participants are provided with the tools and concepts necessary to lead and make the right decisions during catastrophic events. Soldiers and Airmen are provided world-class military education and the opportunity to recieve graduate level college credit through the program.

The HSI, in partnership with the Harvard Kennedy School (HKS), Massachusetts Institute of Technology Lincoln Laboratory (MIT-LL), Northeastern University's Kostas Research Institute, and civilian stakeholders, manages five 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, in-depth analysis of prior incidents, and homeland protection technologies.
