About the Combating Terrorism Center

The Combating Terrorism Center at West Point educates, advises, and conducts research to equip present and future leaders with the intellectual tools necessary to understand the challenges of terrorism and counterterrorism.

We Teach

As an institution, we embrace the unique responsibility to prepare cadets and other counterterrorism practitioners to think critically about the challenges they will face during war and peace.

We Research

We are committed to producing objective, rigorous, and policy-relevant research that applies theory to practice, informs strategic counterterrorism thinking, and moves the boundaries of academic knowledge.

We Advise

We leverage our expertise and unique position to contribute to discrete advisory efforts for federal, state, and local government, and to build bridges between counterterrorism stakeholders.
