With your support and (often) participation over the past year, the Clements-Strauss Intelligence Studies Project (ISP) broadened its institutional base and continued growing in a purposely sustainable manner.  Our tactical aims are unchanged: to offer rigorous academic courses on national security topics, to promote policy-relevant research, and to host public events that draw attention to the most serious intelligence policy debates.  We are making progress toward our strategic goal of building at The University of Texas at Austin a premier academic center for the study of U.S. Intelligence.  Much, though, remains to be done.
