National Counterterrorism Innovation, Technology, and Education Center (NCITE)

NCITE researcher Devorah Margolin, of partner George Washington University, presented on women and extremism at UNO.


NCITE is America’s latest terrorism and targeted violence-fighting tool. Our work is counterterrorism research: 50+ academics from 18 universities focused on 10 pressing areas of study. Our goal is to innovate, educate, and create new prevention strategies while building a workforce pipeline where it’s desperately needed: in STEM and Homeland Security fields.

Our team of dedicated researchers, instructors, and professionals is proud to be hosting a U.S. Department of Homeland Security Center of Excellence at UNO.

On the 20th anniversary of 9/11, NCITE offers condolences to the families of those who lost their lives to terrorism on Sept. 11, 2001, and in the years since. We mark this occasion with sadness and resolve. For this date reminds us why we study terrorism and how hard we want to work to help stop it.
