Bellevue University Wins Government Security News Homeland Security Award

Bellevue University’s Security Management Program received top honors in Government Security News (GSN) 1st Annual Homeland Security Awards in the "Best Training/Higher Education" category.

Finalists and winners in 35 categories were selected by a panel of objective and independent judges, according to GSN's editor-in-chief, Jacob Goodwin, who oversaw the evaluation process. Winners were announced at an event GSN hosted in midtown Manhattan the night before the opening of two security expos at the Javits Center in New York City – Public Security & Safety and ISC East.

"The Security Management Program has gained tremendous momentum through the years and this award solidifies the program’s real learning for real life curriculum in developing students’ knowledge of security management best practices and industry preparedness," said Greg Allen, Program Director, Bellevue University.

Bellevue University’s Security Management Program is comprised of a Master of Science and Bachelor of Science in Security Management. The Program is the largest combined undergraduate and graduate Security Management degree program in the nation, according to an April 2007 Security Magazine/Maddry and Associates study. Coursework covers the security management industry as a whole and includes: homeland security fundamentals, effective emergency planning, risk analysis, terrorism, cyber security, among others. Both degrees are offered in class and online through the University’s award-winning online learning platform.

"Bellevue University infuses real-life situations and lessons into the curriculum, so students can apply their knowledge in real-time to actual, on-the-job challenges, which contributes to our students’ success rate," said Mary Hawkins, Ph.D., President, Bellevue University.

Graduate level students presented "Critical Infrastructure Planning" at the National Homeland Security Conference, and in 2006, students were invited to present at the ASIS International Conference as the only student presenters. Bellevue University’s Security Management Program is one of eight recognized by the Air Force Personnel Center for recruiting needs and developing future civilian leaders. Four of ten positions in the Palace Acquire Intern Program were filled by Bellevue University graduates last year, an unheard of ratio for one university.
