Neil Narang, Global Security Hub Co-Convener, Receives Course Development Grant

Neil Narang (Global Security Hub Co-Convenor and Assistant Professor, Political Science Department) was recently selected for an award from the Stanton Foundation to develop a course on Nuclear Security, based on his time serving as a Senior Advisor in the Office of the Secretary of Defense. The grant includes approximately $10,000 for course support, including travel expenses for guest lecturers. In order to extend the impact of this new course creation, the Orfalea Center for Global and International Studies at UC Santa Barbara will support the course for an additional three years and thus enable Narang and the Global Security Hub to continue to bring preeminent scholars and policy makers to UCSB for four years. The first offering of this course will occur during Winter 2019. Details to follow.
