The National Security Agency and the Department of Homeland Security have designated the University of Memphis as a National Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense Research (CAE/R) through academic year 2021.  The designation will be formally recognized with a certificate presentation in June 2015.

The U of M is also recognized as a National Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense Education, making us one of the handful of institutions in the country with both the Research and Education designations.  A full list of CAE institutions can be found on the NSA's website at https://www.nsa.gov/ia/academic_outreach/nat_cae/institutions.shtml.
