In 2014, Chicago State University (CSU) was awarded a grant to establish an Intelligence Community Centers for Academic Excellence ( IC-CAE). CSU’s IC CAE is housed in the Center for Information & Security Education and Research (CINSER). CINSER is the only IC-CAE in Illinois and Great Lakes Region and it is established to offer educational programs and to perform research activities in the area of security and intelligence.
CINSER is an interdisciplinary center at Chicago State University which serves the university and local community through activities in the areas of Teaching, Outreach and Research.
Teaching - CINSER provides support for an academic program in Security and Intelligence Studies (SIS). Chicago State University offers an undergraduate minor concentration in Security and Intelligence Studies and a newly approved Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Security and Intelligence Studies. Specializations in the minor and the certificate include Cybersecurity, Geospatial Intelligence, Information Analytics, Foreign language (Arabic, Kiswahili and other critical languages) and customized options. In addition to formal education, CINSER provides co-curricular activities to the campus community including research round tables, tours of local security and intelligence facilities, and student challenges.
Outreach - CINSER provides many outreach opportunities to the campus and local community through an annual symposium, free non-credit courses, webinars featuring leaders from the field, professional development activities, and summer camps and learning opportunities for children and adults. rCINSER also supports academic units, campus groups and community groups with special projects related to security and intelligence.
Research - CINSER supports research in areas of applied security and intelligence studies from a diversity of academic perspectives. CINSER supports the existing research programs of faculty related to security and intelligence and members of the center team and advisory board conduct studies related to security issues from an applied information technology approach and from a social science approach.
