About Henley-Putnam

Message from the Founder and President

Henley-Putnam University was founded after ten years of arduous planning and research, and before the tragic events of September 11th, 2001, to contribute to the professional development of military, government, law enforcement and national security professionals. In the post-9/11 era, security concerns have risen to unprecedented levels. This trend has greatly increased the demand for intelligence, counterterrorism, and protection personnel in both the public and private sectors.

The founders of Henley-Putnam possess extensive backgrounds in strategic security including the intelligence, counterterrorism and protection communities. Faculty members have served in senior positions across numerous government agencies and military branches. Our experts who have studied terrorism and worked in various capacities in the strategic security field can give you hands-on, real life experiences to help you reach a confident level of capability.

The University is designed to contribute to the establishment of higher education standards in the areas of strategic security, intelligence and counter-terrorism. The ultimate purpose of our online Bachelor’s, Master's, Doctoral degrees and certificates is to enhance the knowledge and skills of professionals whose primary mission is the protection of human life. It is evident that the need for such training and education grows ever more rapidly during these tumultuous times, especially with numerous shifts in geopolitics.

Our hope is that you will want to become a part of this team, to not only be successful in what you do in this field, but to help others become successful as well. So welcome to Henley-Putnam University – we’re here for you today and in the future.
