Community college to prepare next-gen Homeland Security personnel

January 20, 2011 |
Homeland Security Education Center

The College of DuPage, Glen Ellyn, Ill., began work on the Homeland Security Education Center, which will prepare future emergency personnel to tackle terrorist attacks and disasters. The $25 million, 61,100-sf building’s centerpiece will be an immersive interior street lab for urban response simulations. Plans also include an emergency operations command center, forensics and cybercrime labs, and a mock courtroom with judge’s chambers. Chicago-area firms Legat Architects and Brubaker designed the project, which aims for LEED Silver.
