It all starts with an idea:
Let's build an academic competency in the business of government and government contracting.
It takes a commitment:
We feel it's our responsibility to support this community, one that not only serves our nation but employs our graduates. We are committed to delivering the kind of programs that lift up and enrich the larger government contracting industry.

And it helps to have John Hillen, an industry leader, with the energy and drive to make it happen.
Within six months of our start, we stood up a Board of Advisors representing a broad range of GovCon business interests, from small to large in size, all ready to share their passion in building this competency.
Within a year, we had achieved $1 million toward our $3 million dollar goal of becoming a full-fledged Center under the School of Business.
We will use these web pages to mark our development, to fulfill our commitment to academic excellence, to engage government and business through research and publication, and to produce solutions that help to create a more efficient and effective market for the public good.
