The Robert J. Heibel Distinguished Chair of Intelligence Studies

Mercyhurst University created an endowed chair – The Robert J. Heibel Distinguished Chair of Intelligence Studies. Read more about it at GoErie. Below is an excerpt:

The first class Bob Heibel taught in the intelligence studies program he founded at what was then Mercyhurst College was held in a home economics classroom.

A group of would-be intelligence analysts gathered around kitchen tables while Heibel, a 25-year veteran of the FBI and former deputy chief of counterterrorism, gave a presentation in front of the sink. Eleven students enrolled in the program that year.

Much has changed in the two decades since.

Bridging The Gap

One of the subtle, yet constant needs people have always had has been the need to know. Historically, that need has given rise to the birth of intelligence as a discipline; all the way from Sun Tzu and the Roman frumentarii to the romantic James Bond and high-tech satellites, we still have that need to know.

But, all of those examples have one thing in common: they are all state actors, all them working for a government, who in turn protects its populace and executes its policies and beliefs. But what does the future hold? Who else needs to know? The Institute for Intelligence Studies at Mercyhurst University (even way back to when it was just R/IAP in the Nineties) has realized that as much as there is the iconic perception of national security actions, as well as the realm of law enforcement, more and more businesses are beginning to consult the Oracle, asking for visions and clear predictions of the future.
