The IGKNU was founded by a grant from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI), under the Intelligence Community Centers of Academic Excellence (IC CAE) program, implemented to more broadly educate university students for national security and intelligence professions. The CAE funds a rich constellation of curricular and extra-curricular endeavors that make up the Global Security Studies and Leadership (GSSL) program.
