It involves reliance on thoughtful leaders both within and outside the region. The NSS is not about military intervention, even though this would prove beneficial in dealing with the current threats.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
