USC Designated as Intelligence Community Center for Academic Excellence

Thanks to its commitment to training the next generation of diverse, technically-minded professionals within the intelligence and national securities communities, USC has been designated as an Intelligence Community Center for Academic Excellence (IC CAE) by the Office for the Director of National Intelligence.

Though the IC CAE designation is relatively new, it is already making an impact within USC’s community.

“By designating the University of Southern California as a Center for Academic Excellence in the Intelligence Community, our nation’s intelligence leaders have recognized the multidisciplinary strengths that our university offers in science, engineering, computer science, international relations, and public policy—disciplines that are foundational for our future intelligence community professionals,” USC faculty member Col [R] Steven D. Fleming, Ph.D. said.

The USC IC CAE Faculty Advisory Board includes three faculty members from the USC Spatial Sciences Institute (SSI): Col [R] Steven D. Fleming, Ph.D.; Michael Orosz, Ph.D.; and Gregory F. Treverton, Ph.D. Fleming is recognized as a world leader in human security and geospatial intelligence (HSGI). In his 30-year career with the U.S. Army, Fleming had command and staff experience in short-range and defense operations and taught as an Academy Professor at the U.S. Military Academy (West Point, New York).
