- Bobby R. Inman, former Director of the National Security Agency and Deputy Director of Central Intelligence

"There has been far too little focus in the academic world on the Intelligence Community and the critical role it plays in our country's national security. The Intelligence Studies Project will position the University of Texas at Austin to be a leading academic center on U.S. intelligence."
