AAU Sends Letter Thanking Secretary Mayorkas for Reestablishing the Homeland Security Academic Advisory Council

AAU sent a letter to Secretary Mayorkas thanking him for his leadership in reestablishing the Homeland Security Academic Advisory Council (HSAAC). Per DHS, HSAAC will “provide advice and recommendations to the Secretary and DHS senior leadership on matters related to homeland security and the academic community” and will consist of up to 30 members appointed by the secretary of homeland security.

HSAAC was established in 2012; it has not held any meetings since July 2017. The restoration of HSAAC was one of the recommendations AAU and other higher education associations had made to newly confirmed Secretary Mayorkas in February 2021.
