Elementary School Intelligence Analysts Or Why Bob Heibel Is The Man (

Bob Heibel is responsible for some amazing innovations in intelligence over the years. After a full career in the FBI and a short stint in the corporate security world, he started the program here at Mercyhurst 16+ years ago -- long before anyone else was even thinking about applied intelligence studies programs.

Back in 2003, he thought that intelligence educators worldwide should have an organization of their own and was the driving force behind the development of the International Association For Intelligence Education (IAFIE).

Now he is getting students interested in intelligence analysis while they are still in elementary school! It is a really interesting program and these are some lucky young students. Congratulations to Bob and the Mercyhurst intel studies students who are making this happen!
