This partnership will work to elevate the National Security studies field by

  • Joining resources to connect emerging talent with established leaders in Counterintelligence

“We’re excited to partner with an organization whose values align so closely with ours,” said Michael C. Quinn, Vice President of MICA Bragg Chapter. “MICA represents the current and retired military workers and it is our responsibility to ensure this next generation has the tools to better the field.   With this partnership we can engage and provide institutional knowledge to a new generation of National Security Workers and the future members of MICA.”

The collaboration will allow MICA Bragg to become valuable members of the Lint Center Mentor team. Mentors are selected and matched based on the mentees interest and the mentor’s specialty. The mentorship program creates an opportunity for scholarship winners to network within their fields and learn from experienced professionals.

“I was present when the Military Intelligence Corps was activated on July 1st, 1987 it has matured a great deal since then. A large part of that success is due to the strong professional association supporting the MI Corps,” said James R. Lint, CEO at the Lint Center. “MICA connects Military Intelligence soldiers with unsurpassed professional journals and programs. Mentors from MICA can only increase the quality of the Lint Center’s Mentors.”
