The majority of the corruption in the United States—from warrantless surveillance to endless wars, to unregulated spending—can be tied back to a number of government agencies that operate with no oversight, and face no accountability. One of the most important factors that is often ignored is where this influence begins, and how these agencies find their recruits.

In many cases, it starts with colleges and universities that receive funding from the agencies. George Mason University was recently chosen to receive $3.85 million a year, for the next 10 years, from the Department of Homeland Security. The purpose is to create a new Center of Excellence in Criminal Investigations and Network Analysis.”

Over 200 universities will receive funding for these Centers of Excellence, and according to a press release from DHS, their research will focus on “criminal network analysis, dynamic patterns of criminal activity, forensics, and criminal investigative processes.” 

With the focus on Criminal Investigations and Network Analysis, participants will work with “DHS components and other federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies to develop strategies and solutions for on-the-ground use by agents and officers to predict, thwart, and prosecute crimes,” while also contributing to “the education and development of both university students and professionals working in the realms of prevention, prediction, investigation and prosecution.” 

“The Center’s research will focus on criminal network analysis, dynamic patterns of criminal activity, forensics, and criminal investigative processes.  CINA will work with DHS components and other federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies to develop strategies and solutions for on-the-ground use by agents and officers to predict, thwart, and prosecute crimes.  CINA will also contribute to the education and development of both university students and professionals working in the realms of prevention, prediction, investigation and prosecution.”

The Federal Emergency Management Institute also keeps a list of universities that currently have Homeland Security programs, which includes California State University Dominguez-Hills, Colorado State University-Global Campus, Pennsylvania State University World Campus, Texas A&M University and the University of California, Los Angeles.

College students are even being given incentives to create propaganda videos for the Department of Homeland Security through programs such as “Peer to Peer: Challenging Extremism” from EdVenture Partners, which states that its mission is to create:

“University students develop and execute campaigns and social media strategies against extremism that are credible, authentic and believable to their peers and resonate within their communities in partnership with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.”

The goal of the campaign was to “design and implement a social or digital initiative, product, or tool to motivate and empower fellow students to become involved in countering violent extremism and hate speech.” Over 10,000 students participated, and each team “received $2,000 for campaign activation, plus Facebook ad credits.”
