From the Document: "We are very fortunate to have so much talent and passion amongst our faculty, staff, participants, and alumni. Over the last 16 years, the Center for Homeland Defense and Security (CHDS) has grown to offer many rigorous and engaging academic programs to a wide variety of stakeholders at all phases of the homeland security profession. In addition to our Master's Program which hosts in-residence sessions within a traditional classroom setting in Monterey and Maryland, our Executive Education Programs (EEP) and can bring the education to you--providing facilitated programs locally to elected officials, agencies, and professional associations who want to benefit from the expertise of our faculty, subject matter experts, and alumni. Executive Education Seminars range from a couple of hours to several days in duration and can be delivered in the form of a seminar, symposium, workshop, presentation or short course at local venues. The evolution of EEP will allow us greater flexibility to deliver targeted curriculum and address the CHDS core mission of educating homeland security leaders to address the emerging threats to our nation."
