The CINA Center is pursuing three types of workforce and professional development activities related to its mission of disabling transnational criminal organizations:
- Educating the future workforce by developing integrative cross-disciplinary academic courses, at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, that build upon existing programs in science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and analytics. This curriculum will integrate findings from CINA research, and build upon connections with the homeland security professionals.
- Creating professional development methods to strengthen the substantive, scientific, engineering, business, and analytical capabilities of the current homeland security workforce as they face diverse and novel transnational crime challenges.
- Improving workforce diversity through innovative interaction with Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs) and focusing on minority student recruitment.
