The 16th Annual Homeland Defense & Security Education Summit, hosted by the Naval Postgraduate School Center for Homeland Defense and Security (CHDS), in partnership with the Department of Homeland Security and FEMA National Preparedness Directorate, is set to take place virtually on November 1-2, 2023. The summit will provide a platform for educators, experts, and researchers to come together and discuss how homeland security relates to the bureaucratic and threat landscape of our time.
This year’s theme, Homeland Defense and Security Education at a Crossroads: Innovating for Enduring Value, focuses on two primary areas:
- Assessing the Relevance of the Homeland Security Enterprise: Including how to relate homeland security to the continuing war in Europe, climate change, and upcoming presidential election, among other relevant topics.
- Role of Academia in Addressing Current and Projected Challenges: Including research and education to support Homeland Security’s role in meeting complex systems in relation to domestic/foreign threats, public health, climate security, and more.
In addition to these focus areas, the summit encourages discussions on various sub-themes, including emerging threats, intelligence education, infrastructure protection, technological advancements, and innovation in education delivery.
