Campuses in running for security program
Mel Bernstein, department of homeland security director of university programs, announced last week that NU was one of 12 universities selected from 72 that submitted initial proposals for a DHS Center of Excellence for Risk Analysis and Modeling Related to the Economic Consequences of Terrorism.
The full proposal will detail how researchers at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, the University of Nebraska at Omaha and the University of Nebraska Medical Center would create programs and plans that would evaluate the risks bioterrorism attacks could pose to Nebraska's infrastructure and transportation systems, said Steven Hinrichs, director of the University of Nebraska Center for Biosecurity.
"We're very pleased that DHS has selected the University of Nebraska from 72 universities to compete," he said. "This is a great opportunity to show the cooperation between our campuses."
