Homeland security issues increasingly shape the national political agenda. IT professionals responding to unprecedented demands for unified and robust information systems on campuses are also constrained by compliance with federal and local mandates. Additionally, institutional safety and security improvements require cultural change to be effective. For some, these demands are simply a reflection of a changed world. For others, they conflict with the academy's core values of openness, freedom, privacy, and autonomy. A panel of experts from higher education and the intelligence and law enforcement communities will explore the implications of the homeland security agenda for IT organizations in higher education.
