Border Security + Immigration

The Center for the Management of Information (CMI) is the lead research institution of the Center of Excellence for Border Security and Immigration (BSI). BSI is a consortium of premier universities that live and work on the border and are squarely on the forefront of America’s national security efforts. With a uniquely qualified staff and expertise in departments across the country, BSI’s collaborative work ranges from cutting-edge identification optics to probing analysis of immigration policy, to balancing streamlined cross-border trade with the demands for heavy security.

The National Center for Border Security and Immigration (NC-BSI) is committed to ensuring that government agencies and stakeholders have the necessary tools and information to better understand and proactively respond to border issues. Our singular focus will be to provide our sponsors with well-founded and scientifically informed knowledge to expedite the development of innovative, practical, and cost-effective solutions to help satisfy the ever-changing demands of their operational environment.
