The Homeland Security Defense Coalition and the Homeland Security University project has lost some great people while awaiting project funding:
Dr William "Bill" Jenkins
Dr Terry Jackson
Captain John G. Broz, USN (ret.)
Dr. Frederick "Fritz" Budde
William Jenkins, MBA, Ph.D. (can) was our Vice President of Educational Regulatory Affairs for Homeland Security Defense Coalition and a course Instructor and Regulatory Affairs professional with the Homeland Security University. He has spent the last 28 years working in college level education filling a variety of positions within the academic community. Bill started his career upon leaving the US Navy in 1976 where he served as an Electronic Technician in support of the Naval Oceanographic Office.
His career journey began as a Professor of Electronic Technology, working with special needs students in Charleston, South Carolina. Teaching basic and advance electronics theory to minority students where they were often first time college students in their family. This appointment provided the foundation for a successful platform career that continues today.
Seeking to expand his teaching options to include software development and training, Bill joined the faculty of a private college in southern New Hampshire. He completed his Bachelor degree from Franklin Pierce College in Rindge, NH, and included software development and Business Administration. Offering classes in software programming and basic business administration, Bill continued to work with special needs students in the New Hampshire Job Training program (CETA). In addition, he worked with integrating the PC platform into the education arena as a training tool for word-processing, electronic spreadsheet analysis and database development.
In the early 1990s Bill completed his MBA with a concentration in Business Administration from Pfeiffer College in Misenheimer, North Carolina. This provided opportunities for developing course work in faculty development with a focus on using technology in the classroom. Working as the Systems Administrator and Assistant Professor of Computer Information Systems Bill was instrumental in bringing technology to the classroom for every college discipline.
In the following years a number of management positions included Academic Department Chair and Academic Dean for a larger for-profit University system in Florida. This included opportunities in faculty development and supervision, and new program development and implementation.
As technology and the Internet have developed with the introduction to Distance Education/On Line Learning he moved toward this new venue. Today Bill is working with groups across the country to translate on-ground teaching techniques into classes he is teaching in this new environment. He has training with online presentation platforms to provide strong learning experiences for his online students.
During his career, Bill has received numerous recognitions for his platform presence.

Captain John J. Broz, USN (ret) was the catylist behind HSDC seeking project funding to open 60 training centers that will eventually evolve into college campuses once they meet all educational standards for each location they were opened in. After 9 years of working towards meeting that objective, we lost John when he passed away. His idea was rather than just offering the courses and programs online, why not open many learning centers in the USA and other countries to prevent terrorism.

Dr. Budde has served as the Regional Occupational Safety Manager for the Eastern Region of the Federal Aviation Administration, as a Special Agent with FAA Security and until recently with the Federal Air Marshal Service.
