Opportunities for student research on real-world problems

Open-source intelligence and its collection is an emerging area of skills-based aptitudes used by government, military, intelligence organizations, businesses, non-profits and more to identify and leverage a broad array of data. The proposed Open-Source Tradecraft Exploratory Lab (OSTEL) would seek to provide resources, training, and active learning opportunities on real-world problem sets to students. 

Please use the GIVE NOW button above to make your tax-deductible gift to support this JMU innovation. 

Additionally, with the focus on real-world problems, these research outputs may have the ability to shape and inform policy as there is a great demand by policymakers and news organizations for this type of research and analysis, potentially increasing publicity for JMU and the affiliated programs.
