Preparing Leaders for America's Global Market
Norfolk State University was awarded a $2.3 million grant from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) in the fall of 2006 to establish an Intelligence Community Center for Academic Excellence or IC-CAE. The goal of the IC-CAE is to prepare students for leadership positions in government service with a specific emphasis on developing those critical skills necessary to begin a career in the Intelligence Community. About IC-CAE
2013 Dr. Yvonne B. Miller "Spirit of the IC" Award Susan Wassem was recognized as the first NSU IC-CAE "Spirit of the IC" award recipient. The award will be given on an annual basis to a student who best exemplifies the characteristics most like Dr. Miller: a outstanding leader; champion for issues and concerns of the underserved; loyal and devoted to NSU; and a true exemplar of servant leadership.
