Report: DSCA Chief Charles Hooper Mulls Establishment of ‘Security Cooperation University’

Charles Hooper

U.S. Army Maj. Gen. Charles Hooper, director of the Defense Security Cooperation Agency, wants DSCA to establish a security cooperation university as part of efforts to accelerate the foreign military sales process, Defense News reported Wednesday.

Hooper said at an Association of the U.S. Army event held Oct. 10 he envisions that the new university would “not only provide courses for people going to the field, but a genuine font of learning and knowledge, specifically focused on security cooperation.”

He also pointed to the Defense Acquisition University as a possible model for the proposed new institution.

Hooper, who assumed the DSCA leadership role in August, seeks to increase workforce education for security cooperation professionals and coordination between the agency and the military branches.
