Who We Are

Funded by a grant awarded by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, we have been designated an Intelligence Community Center for Academic Excellence. Our two-fold mission is to ensure that Florida A & M University develops and implements a competitive program in global security and international affairs, while assisting to diversify the intelligence workforce with eligible applicants who possess critical core skills.  Two major programmatic elements of the Center are the IC Scholars Program and the Certificate/Minor in Global Security.

There are four (4) components utilized to effectively meet our mission and vision. Those components are:     

1. Integrated Interdisciplinary Curriculum
2. Study Abroad and Cultural Immersion
3. Regional and National Colloquium
4. Pre-Collegiate Summer Institute
