Welcome to CTEC’s newsletter!

Formerly known as the Monterey Terrorism Research and Education Program, CTEC collaborates with world-renowned faculty and their graduate students in the Middlebury Institute’s Nonproliferation and Terrorism Studies degree program.

Our research informs private, government, and multilateral institutional understanding of and responses to terrorism threats. CTEC is a mixed-methods research center, meaning that our experts and students use analytic tradecraft, data science, and linguistics. We mentor our students and the wider MIIS community on skills that are in demand from government agencies, international organizations, technology companies, and financial institutions.

While CTEC is affiliated with MIIS’s Nonproliferation and Terrorism Studies (NPTS) department, we also employ faculty and students from across MIIS and Middlebury College.
