About the sponsor

The Intelligence Studies Project was established in 2013 as a partnership between UT’s Clements Center for National Security and the Robert S. Strauss Center for International Security and Law out of a conviction that the activities of the U.S. Intelligence Community were increasingly critical to safeguarding our national security and yet were understudied at universities.  The ISP aims to develop at the University of Texas-Austin a premier center for the study of U.S. Intelligence through a variety of programs including new course offerings, research projects, periodic conferences, and other public events focused on intelligence topics.  To learn more about ISP, please visit the website at http://intelligencestudies.utexas.edu/.
