Excerpt:
     In the rolling hills of Mystic, Connecticut, and the enviable environs of the U.S. Coast Guard Academy, individuals from government, military, industry, and academia gathered November 16-18, 2004, to examine the viability of pedagogical efforts to address strategic studies for homeland security.
     Acknowledging the many short-term technical efforts that are now directed to this issue, attendees also used the conference as a forum for discussing the changes in the security environment and how best to address these changes with curriculum and policy research programs that will prepare military and civilian leaders to make effective decisions on the optimal course of action to follow when the country is faced with terrorist threats and infrastructure disruptions. In addition, the converence was designed to provide a framework for the direction of strategic studies for senior decision makers from all sectors.
