In 2005, Congress mandated the establishment of the IC CAE Program to develop, prepare, and educate the next generation of intelligence professionals with the core skills necessary to meet the United States’ National Security imperatives, through increased educational, cultural and experiential opportunities and career prospects within the Intelligence Community (IC). Accredited Universities whose programs meet or exceed the IC CAE’s rigorous and sustainable National Security and Intelligence education academic requirements, have earned the prestigious designation of IC CAE. The University of Arizona received its IC CAE Program designation in 2019. To learn more: Office of the Director of National Intelligence.
