The Integrative Center for Homeland Security™ serves as the single integrated voice for all efforts in homeland security within The Texas A&M University System that lead to a safer and better prepared society.


To establish the Texas A&M University System as the known entity for homeland security.

Who We Are:

The Integrative Center for Homeland Security was established by the Texas A&M University System (TAMUS) Board of Regents in May 2002. The Center serves as an umbrella organization, facilitator and coordinator for all homeland security activities in a diverse set of programmatic areas across the A&M System. These areas include, but are not limited to, emergency response; food and water security; network/data security and information technology; social/political issues and politics; management of biohazards; physical infrastructure and transportation; counter measures/basic research; detection/remote sensing; physical countermeasures; and health issues.

The overall objective for ICHS is to be an all-inclusive Center that promotes and portrays the story of all homeland security efforts and enhances collaboration within the Texas A&M University System in relation to five notable areas:

  • Research and Policy
  • Education
  • Extension
  • Training
  • Response

ICHS is currently in the process of creating a new website.
