Founded in 2007, CAGS seeks to enhance and expand the teaching, research, and service mission of Indiana University concerning the security challenges facing the United States and the global community in the 21st century.
Threats to U.S. and global security no longer emanate only from the military power of rival States. Security threats now arise from the collapse of weak States, the potential diffusion of weapons of mass destruction into the hands of terrorists, the threat of disease pandemics, and instability triggered by humanitarian crises related to natural disasters or environmental degradation. Achieving homeland, national, and global security in a rapidly globalizing world constitutes a complex challenge that requires innovation in policy, technology, research, education, training, and governance.
Building on Indiana University’s nationally and internationally recognized expertise and experience in many academic fields relevant to security policy, CAGS serves as a focal point of Indiana University’s commitment to helping governments, educational institutions, international organizations, corporations, non-governmental entities, and populations in Indiana, the United States, and abroad respond effectively to the diverse threats that affect the security of communities all over the world.
