The Triangle Center on Terrorism and Homeland Security (TCTHS) is a collaborative effort between Duke University, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and RTI International to enhance the understanding of terrorism and the means to combat it through education, research and the development of partnerships between universities, industry and government. Founded in 2005, TCTHS provides a forum for the exchange of views, information, and expertise between a broad cross section of the Triangle community — students, faculty, researchers, government officials, first responders, and interested members of the public.   In pursuing these goals, the Triangle Center draws on the wide array of scholars, researchers, and experts from the three sponsor institutions who are engaged in work ranging from basic research to the execution of government funded projects.
