The National Security Policy Center
A hub for training, research, and engagement on pressing issues in security policy at the University of Virginia.Learn More
We facilitate imaginative thinking, problem-solving, and dialogue on otherwise intractable security policy issues of global concern.
Education & Training
We train students and security professionals from across U.S. government and select international partners. Our programs develop deep knowledge and practical analytical skills.
We support cutting edge research on national security policy from highly distinguished scholars. Our scholars and policy affiliates also provide research services on vital issues of national security directly to the U.S. government.
We develop “constructive counterparts” within the U.S. government and convene meetings with academics and government officials to discuss pressing security issues.
I have gained significant national security knowledge through the Center’s programs and events. I feel very prepared for the modern workforce.
