Mercyhurst University

Mercyhurst University, a private Catholic comprehensive university, will engage its nationally renowned Ridge College of Intelligence Studies and Applied Sciences for this project. The Intelligence Studies Department in the Ridge College is the oldest post-secondary intelligence program in the United States, with more than 1,000 alumni working in every major industry sector and 17 agencies of the U.S. federal intelligence community. Currently, the Ridge College enrolls nearly 600 students and administers $12 million in public and private sector grants and contracts. Increasingly, these funded opportunities involve cyber and corporate security projects.
