The National Security Higher Education Advisory Board (NSHEAB) was created in 2005 to bridge gaps between the U.S. intelligence community and academia with respect to national security issues that pertain to universities with significant research and development programs. The expressed purpose of the board is "to foster outreach and to promote understanding between higher education and the Federal Bureau of Investigation."
The board also facilitates communication between universities and federal authorities on "national priorities pertaining to terrorism, counterintelligence, and homeland security." NSHEAB meets approximately three times yearly and includes representatives from the Central Intelligence Agency and other security agencies.
