ODP Seeks Homeland Security Executives for New Graduate Degree Program

As part of its program to ensure that the nation’s first responders are well prepared to deal with the threat of terrorist activity, the Office for Domestic Preparedness (ODP) of the Department of Homeland Security is supporting a new Homeland Security Leadership Development program at the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS), the prestigious military university in Monterey, California. The concept was developed by NPS Associate Provost Paul Stockton, who brought the idea to ODP. With ODP funding, the recently opened Center for Homeland Defense and Security and its Homeland Security Leadership Development program are designed to sharpen the leadership skills of homeland security executives.
