A Conversation About the Future of Homeland Security Education

I recently wrote a short essay for Journal of Homeland Security Education that graded general state of Homeland Security (HS) education today.

The Many Faces of Terrorism

Popular media often portrays a terrorist as a person of Middle Eastern descent. It’s a shortsighted, dangerous and limited perspective that reflects the media’s lack of diversity in imagination.

You might consider Homeland Security a work in progress. It’s a function. It’s an approach. It’s a new discipline that is a profession in and of itself, but is a facet of many others. It’s far more than the Department of Homeland Security because the whole business of protecting our country is a collaborative effort that, for any given situation, can involve public and private resources, at the local, state and national levels, from firefighters to military personnel to medical researchers.
