for Petro-Chemical Transportation at Texas Southern University

Texas Southern University was among seven institutions earmarked as the National Transportation Security Centers of Excellence in the Improving America’s Security Act of 2007, U.S. Congress House Rule XXI, clause (9)(4), Section 1205, which was signed by President George W. Bush on August 3, 2007. The Earmarks, which provide $18 millions dollars annually, are intended to conduct research and education activities, and to develop or provide professional security training, including the training of transportation employees and transportation professionals. Texas Southern University will join the other two institutions Tougaloo College and the University of Connecticut to co-lead the program, which also includes four other institutions, Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, Long Island University, University of Arkansas, and San Jose State University.  The joint effort of these seven national institutions, all of which have excellent transportation programs, are expected to provide the highest educational and research services to improve the national transportation security.
