Ashland University has launched a partnership with the Advanced Technical Intelligence Center in Dayton.

The joint venture was announced during a news conference Wednesday.

This will allow AU juniors and seniors to take classes at ATIC, to begin training toward careers in intelligence for the military, federal government, or federal law enforcement such as the FBI or ATF.

Dr. Dawn Weber, Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, says since 9-11 there has been a growing need for intelligence analysts, and as the economy improves and veteran analysts start to retire, there's a need for people to replace them.

Ashland University Provost Dr. Frank Pettigrew says this is an example of how the institution is looking toward the future in the educational opportunities it offers.

ATIC Education Director Timothy Shaw says students can take classes for fifteen weeks in fall or spring semesters, or ten weeks during the summer, and earn credit hours toward graduating from Ashland.

The news conference concluded with the formal signing of the partnership agreement.
