BRAC program manager to integrate technologies, processes
TOWSON, Md. (Dec. 13, 2006)—Lt. Col. (Ret.) Robert E. Price, a 22-year veteran of the U.S. Army, has been chosen to lead the Center of Homeland Security for Towson University’s Division of Economic and Community Outreach (DECO).
Price’s extensive experience in homeland security and homeland defense includes developing Interagency Curriculum with the National Defense University and serving as the Deputy Director of Operations, Plans, and Training for the Interagency Directorate of both the North American Aerospace Defense (NORAD) Command and the U.S. Northern Command (USNORTHCOM). He most recently served as program manager in the planning and funding of the Base Re-alignment and Closure (BRAC) process for the Army.
“Bob has a strong track record of ‘thinking big’ and building collaborative relationships,” said James P. Clements, Vice President for Economic and Community Outreach. “Those are two critical qualities for the continued development of Towson University’s regional leadership in the growing field of homeland security.”
Price earned his undergraduate degree from the University of Virginia and master's degrees from both Troy State University (International Relations) and Colorado Technical University (Information Technology Management). He holds certificates in Project Management, Data Base Management, Networking and Telecommunications, and System Analysis and Integration.
“Homeland Security, like most endeavors, is about the integration of people, technologies, and processes,” Price said. “Here at Towson University, DECO has shown how to maximize the efficiency of all three to achieve exceptional results. I am fortunate to join such a great team.”
