2012—The Director of National Intelligence recently designated the CISS as an Intelligence Community Center of Academic Excellence. Along with the recognition that comes with such an honor, CAE schools receive several years of funding from the federal government to develop courses, fund student study abroad opportunities and run conferences and workshops.

“I am especially happy about what this means for our students,” said Carl Jensen, CISS director. “It is further validation that the IC approves of our educational model and the recognition will open doors for Ole Miss students in the future.”
