The University of South Florida has announced the creation of the Global and National Security Institute, an initiative designed to further place the state of Florida at the forefront in sectors of defense, economic and political security, health and human security and infrastructure and environmental security.
Kenneth “Frank” McKenzie, a retired Marine Corps general and former chief of U.S. Central Command, will lead the institute. McKenzie brings decades-long military and international security background.
“Using an interdisciplinary approach, our focus will be to integrate national security and defense policy with human and social behavior issues, engineering and technology,” McKenzie said.
