The Maryland Academy for Innovation in National Security


Maryland’s two most powerful public research universities, the University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB) and the University of Maryland, College Park (UMCP), are committed to working strategically and collaboratively with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to help foster continuous innovation at the world’s preeminent intelligence-led law enforcement organization. With appreciation for the FBI’s Mission Priorities and Strategic Objectives, the University of Maryland will harmonize its relevant capabilities in terrorism and counterterrorism studies, intelligence analysis, cybersecurity and high performance computing, criminology and criminal justice, illicit trafficking, national security law, leadership, critical national security languages, homeland security and crisis management, and medicine and medical forensics. We will partner in highly relevant applied research efforts, incorporate the FBI’s experiential knowledge and empirically-based findings into professional training, educate the next generation workforce of the FBI, and offer world class educational opportunities for FBI personnel during their tenure at FBI headquarters and beyond.
