  • Outreaching with national, state, and regional offices, agencies, and organizations
  • Pursuing, supporting, and conducting sponsored research
  • Acquiring and storing quantitative and qualitative datasets, software, and equipment
  • Equipping students with real-world research experiences and capacities
  • Collaborating with and supporting the existing efforts of the premier research conducted by the Community and Family Institute (CFI) and the Terrorism Research Center (TRC)
