BGS IC CAE Represented at the 13th Annual IAFIE Conference

The Bluegrass State Intelligence Community Center of Academic Excellence (BGS IC CAE) was well represented at the 13th Annual International Association for Intelligence Education (IAFIE) Conference held on May 21-24, 2017 in Charles Town, WV.  The conference theme was “New Challenges and Opportunities for Enhancing Intelligence Education.”  The conference was attended by both academic and practitioners in the intelligence field from around the world.   
During the conference, four (4) IC CAE Scholars from Eastern Kentucky University (EKU) conducted poster presentations.  Below is the list of students and their associated poster title.  Copies of the posters and images from the conference are provided at the bottom of the page.
  • Bailey Cox: Improving the U.S. Immigration Vetting Process
  • Tiffani Peel: An Analysis of the DEA FAST Program
  • Jacob Peoples: An Analysis of the Recurring Issues in the CIA
  • Jarren Thomas: An Overview of Protective Intelligence
During the dedicated poster session, the students had the opportunity to present their research to academics and professionals.  Their attendance at the conference also provided beneficial networking opportunities with professionals as well as students from other institutions.  
In addition to the student posters, Dr. Brian Simpkins, BGS IC CAE Associate Director, served as a panelist on the “Teaching Intelligence Analyst Roundtable.”  This roundtable provided an opportunity for educators, practitioners, and others to contribute to a discussion on teaching intelligence analysis and preparing students for future careers in the intelligence community as analysts.
The BGS IC CAE awarded the four EKU IC CAE Scholars grants to fully fund their travel and participation costs related to the 13th Annual IAFIE Conference.
