Utah Valley University is seeking donations to name its national security center in honor of Senator Hatch – the Orrin G. Hatch Center for National Security Studies – and to further develop UVU’s dynamic new National Security program.

Although UVU’s current National Security program is beginning to make a name for itself locally and nationally, we anticipate that naming the center after Senator Hatch, our state’s most distinguished public servant and leader in national security, will provide increased visibility and stature to this emerging vibrant and critically important program. We believe that the Hatch Center is positioned to become the regional leader for national security and intelligence studies and to serve as an anchor for the national security community in the west.

The Center for National Security Studies

About CNSS

The Center for National Security Studies (CNSS) is a nonpartisan academic institution for the instruction, analysis, and discussion of the issues related to the field of U.S. national security.  The mission of the CNSS is twofold: to promote an interdisciplinary academic environment on campus that critically examines both the theoretical and practical aspects of the national security policy and practice; and to assist students in preparing for public and private sector national security careers through acquisition of subject matter expertise, analytical skills, and practical experience.  The CNSS partners with local, regional, national, and international public and private sector organizations to promote this mission.
