The Center for National Security Initiatives (NSI) at the University of Colorado Boulder is dedicated to providing high-impact national security research and workforce development enabled by world-class research scientists and essential infrastructure. The Center addresses the ever-increasing demand for qualified and experienced defense professionals in Colorado and across the nation by creating a prime opportunity for on-demand research collaboration in the national security research enterprise. 

At NSI, our researchers both extend and deepen the national security research done across the University.  We create a wide range of opportunities for training students at all levels of studies and create a pathway to post-graduate jobs and service. 

At the same time, we offer critical operational support, such as business development, proposal support, and pre-/post-award management, that ensures that our researchers can effectively work in this arena effortlessly.
