WHY WE ENGAGE ACADEMIA
U.S. Space Command collaborates with Academia to:
• Shape the future workforce - by creating a more diverse, robust and accessible pool of qualified Space professionals for military and civilian work roles within the Space Mission Force.
• Increase Space applied research and innovation - with cutting-edge research to better understand technical and non-technical (policy, law, threat trends) options, problems, solutions, and innovation opportunities.
• Expand Space-focused academic partnerships - through exchanges and directed research to foster unique competencies, capacities, and expertise that will provide insight into adversaries' cyberspace activities
• Enrich strategic Space dialogue - by informing academic institutions of the command’s roles, authorities, key issues and responsibilities in National security and Space operations.
