Establish the Center for Transportation Security
Funding is requested to support travel and incidental expenses required to establish the Center for Transportation Security (CTS). The CTS will be established under the umbrella of the Missouri Transportation Institute (MTI) as a University of Missouri (UM) System-level Center. The MTI is a consortium of Missouri higher education institutions focused on the research, development, education, public policy and technology transfer functions of the Missouri Department of Transportation (MODOT) to rapidly address any of the state's transportation issues. The CTS will add a security focus to the MTI and will facilitate the formation of faculty research teams from across campuses to conduct research related to the security of transportation systems.
Increase national security and increase cooperative research between the faculty at UMR and UMC.
