About the sponsors:
The Intelligence Studies Project (@UTIntel) was established in 2013 as a joint venture of the Clements Center for National Security and Robert Strauss Center for International Security and Law out of a conviction that the activities of the U.S. intelligence community were increasingly critical to safeguarding our national security and yet were understudied at American universities. The ISP is building at The University of Texas at Austin a premier center for the study of U.S. intelligence through a variety of programs, including new course offerings and research projects, as well as periodic conferences and other public events focused on intelligence topics.
The Clements Center (@ClementsCenter) is a nonpartisan research and policy center that draws on the best insights of diplomatic and military history to train the next generation of national security leaders.
The Strauss Center (@StraussCenter) is a campus-wide interdisciplinary center promoting innovative courses, policy-relevant research and public events concerning a wide array of international and security topics.
One of the nation’s top 10 public affairs schools, the LBJ School (@TheLBJSchool) offers graduate degrees in domestic and global affairs, training students to tackle the most complex policy problems of our day through innovative approaches.
