Today, Northeastern will open the George J. Kostas Institute for Homeland Security, a secure, state-of-the-art research facility located at the University’s Burlington, Mass., campus and funded by a $12 million investment from alumnus George J. Kostas, E’43, H’07. The institute is critical to advancing Northeastern’s leadership in security research.

The University also announces the appointment of the Kostas Institute’s codirectors, Peter Boynton and Dr. Stephen Flynn. Boynton, former commissioner of the Connecticut Department of Emergency Management and Homeland Security, and Flynn, president of the Center for National Policy in Washington, D.C., will provide strong leadership to address critical homeland security challenges through use-inspired, interdisciplinary research undertaken at the institute.
