Workforce Development

A speakers series focused on transnational flows and the way people, goods, and data flow without regard to geographic boundaries. The series gives subject-matter experts and thought leaders an opportunity to discuss key issues in the areas of borders, trade and immigration with government and business leaders, students, and faculty. 

The HS Symposium series is hosted by the Center for Law and Human Behavior at the University of Texas at El Paso. The intention of the symposium series is to increase the amount of education and training on DHS related issues and relevant security subject matter provided to homeland security enterprise practitioners and first-responders.  The symposiums are open to individuals affiliated with the Department of Homeland Security as well as local federal, state, local, and tribal agencies.
