The Combating Terrorism Center is an academic institution at the United States Military Academy. It “educates, advises, and conducts research to equip present and future leaders with the intellectual tools necessary to understand the challenges of terrorism and counterterrorism.” CTC trains “cadets and other counterterrorism practitioners” to deal with any challenges they may face in times of war as well as peace. It also produces “policy-relevant research that applies theory to practice, informs strategic counterterrorism thinking, and moves the boundaries of academic knowledge.” Furthermore, it leverages its “expertise and unique position to contribute to discrete advisory efforts for federal, state, and local government, and to build bridges between counterterrorism stakeholders.”
