“We need to make sure the jobs are there for them here in Nebraska when they graduate so we don’t lose them in places outside of our state,” Moore said.

Dr. Sam Hunter is the Chief of Strategic Operations at NCITE, a national center for counterterrorism innovation, technology and education. The center receives funding from the US Department of Homeland Security, as well as grants that were part of the UN record grants.

“You have elite talent that’s here to do research that might not have happened otherwise if those grants hadn’t been there,” Hunter said.
