Hello Colleagues!

As a service to our membership, I’d like to make you aware of a special opportunity to share your experiences with, your program’s challenges with and your institution’s response to COVID-19.  The Journal of Security, Intelligence and Resilience Education (JSIRE) exists to promote and publish the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL) for the security, intelligence, emergency management/resilience communities.

JSIRE is a brand new refit of the established Journal of Homeland Security Education.    In a special JSIRE issue, we are asking for very short briefs that describe the following.   The timeline is by mid-September 2020. 

How JSIRE Academics Adapted to COVID-19
