Academic Team

Our students, faculty, alumni, administrators, and staff stand out for their commitment to academic excellence, entrepreneurial spirit, diversity, vibrancy, and creative innovation.

Our Academy benefits from not only its longstanding, inextricable connection to the Military, Law Enforcement and First Responder Communities, but also its presence in private sector and local, States and Federal Government. And the cities where we teach are not just backdrops; they are our classrooms and workshops for the community that serves all.

With a world-class faculty and instructors that sets a standard for academic excellence, and the students and candidates abroad, C4SEM Academy is among the most respected and desirable Homeland Security Academy.

We welcome you to participate in the endless opportunities at C4SEM, joining talented instructors who have been drawn to teach, perform, create, and study in a place where only a few belongs.
