NSIN Program Coming to SU
By Bradley Hoppenstein
SYRACUSE, N.Y. – Roger Misso, 12-year Navy veteran and former candidate for the House of Representatives, is joining the National Security Innovation Network as its inaugural Syracuse University program director.
In this new role, Misso will be connecting with SU students, faculty, and lead NSIN’s programming.
NSIN is a Department of Defense program office under the Secretary of Defense. Headquartered in Washington D.C., it partners with research universities and communities to bring tools and solutions to servicemembers. In these partnerships, NSIN helps ambitious students and entrepreneurs make their national defense, and often also civilian solutions, a reality.
Misso, in an interview with CitrusTV, noted that students do not have to wear a uniform to assist in national defense. NSIN’s three portfolios as a new model for National Security innovation: National Service, Collaboration and Acceleration.
“I’m the face of NSIN at Syracuse University and I couldn’t be more proud of that,” Misso told CitrusTV News.
The program is still in its first stages here at SU, but Misso is encouraging any interested students to reach out to him on LinkedIn or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
