The Center for Space Studies (CSS) was created in 2005 as part of the UCCS Network Information & Space Security Center (NISSC) in order to coordinate the University’s education and research activities related to space. NISSC grew to become the National Institute of Science, Space & Security Centers (NISSSC) with the addition of three new centers - the Center for Homeland Security, the Center for Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics Education, and the Trauma, Health & Hazards Center. CSS strives to become a focus of scholars and professionals working together to build and support a center of excellence in space technology and education.
