"So friend. You're aware we is member of the defense industrial base requirement to notify the government in the event that we are attacked and it's not related specifically to having a ransom where request it's any vulnerability that we identify in our networks and operations we would disclose in a timely manner and we believe that that makes us and our partners in this industry stronger as a result of having those disclosure requirements. I know that it is difficult in running a company to think about that level of disclosure requirement as one a company might embrace. But we have because we think that over time it will enhance our ability to defend ourselves and make those tax less likely But at the same time there are many things through. Ceo's to consider if you find yourself in that situation of whether to pay ransomware know first and foremost is the ongoing operational impact. And i know that that was top of mind As companies have dealt with this in the past. but i think it's also important to think about reputational impact. I think it's important to think about future impact in terms so if you pay ransomware then it reduces the deterrent from those actors to act again and so we have seen at three hundred. Plus percent increase in ransomware. In the last two years. I think that is largely in part to companies wanting to pay and be able to move on and get back to Their full operations but at the end of the day if that's increasing the threat surface for everyone. Is that the right thing to do. These really tough questions. I certainly wouldn't second guess any company's decision. Because if you're not in that boardroom you know what situation they're facing but these are just some of the things that we certainly would think about. Before making that decision for northrop grumman so fired defense. Industrial base report to government should that be a requirement. More broadly and then in terms of the pain. The ransom Should the government have a role there in other words should should the government regulate or having role with the private sector in determining when. And how ransoms can you pay. Well as i said. I'm a supporter of disclosure requirements. Because i think it makes our collective as a nation stronger in particular for critical infrastructure companies. We see the impact of these attacks and it can be incredibly disruptive both to our national security and our economic security is a nation and so the government does have a role to play in providing for the collective defense is outlined in the constitution. And i think that only as companies are willing to share information that helps them to perform that role. Will we be at our strongest. so i'm an advocate for it In terms of what companies choose to disclose until that becomes mandatory and just encouraged all companies to think about the collective good in this case not just the interest of their singular company because our adversaries aren't thinking about the threat surface as each independent counsel acting alone and they will attack the weakest link and if we can help each other to make our collective defense stronger i think these attacks become less likely to be successful. Ask you you in a time of either flattening or only cost of living increase in to defense budget. How do you think about itby. S aerospace and. Defense industry's competitiveness versus your usual kind of european. Well the us defense industry. I believe continues to be the strongest around the globe and not become as a result of the investment. That's been made in the industry both the private investment as well as government spending and we have seen the chinese defense industrial base grow significantly in the last decade. Because defense spending in china has been on the take and so these things are highly correlated. And we know that. Across europe defense spending has not been as strongly prioritize movement by nato countries to get back to two percent spend on a of their gdp on defense and those are good movements that will help to strengthen the defense industrial base in europe but that consistent funding stream is essential for an industry to do well but we also in the us have access to some of the best greatest minds. And i believe that is the core of our ability to stay competitive and be at the forefront of innovation and our university system certainly is a key to that ongoing success and so investments in our education and particularly higher education continued to be a cornerstone for what's making not only our industry but many industries As successful as we are greater next questions. We'll take the next question from eddie monetary you much for really engaging conversation. I'm through the university on february. Twenty four the white house issued an executive order to review the apply chain and the national security commission on the i did the precariousness about over dependence on the production of cutting chips from taiwan new. Tsmc how critical Senate conducted shortage at what strategic challenges presented to us defense capabilities that really look at our challenges in semiconductor production in two categories. One you note is a supply chain challenge which i see as temporal. It likely will last a couple of years but still nonetheless. It is a temporal challenge. Just based on the economic shock that we had as a result of the pandemic with declining and then turning into surging demand these things can be worked through additional production investment and largely could be solved by private industry investment. I think the second and more important issue for us to unpack is the aren d. And the fact that advanced Both production of chips as well as packaging is largely outside the us for anything less than fourteen nanometers that is is a key to our further advancement in computing and to use these smaller size Chip form factors in advanced computing application. And so i would love to see us. As a nation go back to not only having some onshore capacity and production to balance that reliance that you talked about the most importantly that we also are focused on the forefront of capability with development and packaging of those smaller form factors that are key to innovation in this country so we pride ourselves on being promptly ending on time so i want to thank all the members for joining today's virtual meeting and thank you kathy for your time. This has been a great conversation. Please note that. Today's video of today's meeting will be posted on our website. Thank you everybody. For more event audio.

"It's been place about a decade and it came together as a result of organization inside the department of homeland security around cyber to have cells where information is collected on an industry specific basis. Most companies now are not only aware that that exists but leveraging the information that the federal government is providing to critical infrastructure providers. But of course for the defense industrial base. We were one of the first areas of focus for partnership with the federal government because we were under attack by nation states to get access not only for the purposes of in our case getting north grummin data. But because we how some of the government's most sensitive data in the weapons systems that were developing and so we worked in partnership with the federal government first and then realized that having those same types of information sharing agreements in place directly instead of going in a hub spoke model through the federal government. Being able to have all the spokes the companies in the industry communicate directly would be even more valuable and more timely. Because when you're fighting cyber warfare. And i do call it that. On a daily basis speed is essential getting access to that information about how others may be under attack. And what you need to do to defend yourself essential so we have extraordinary capability cyber capability and our military. Do we have the resources we need on. You mentioned dhs. i remember. When i was back it was always a struggle to attract those resources of cyber resources into civilian art government one because of salaries right diff- differentiation between the private sector public sector. Do we have enough resources on the civilian side of the federal government. And if not what how do you think how would you advise the civilian side of the federal government to better attract news. But it's a challenge because we're all competing for a pool of talent that is too limited and so you. The first thing we all need to do is think about. How do we help to create a bigger pool of talent. People who have the skills and passion around stem fields getting attracted to cybersecurity as a profession of choice and doing our part in that early because you know people choose their career paths Either by intent or default by choices they make on to study and how to engage with their their choices early in life and so what we have found is we need to reach down into k. Twelve education and create programs that create an interest in pursuing cybersecurity as a profession and then we each obviously need to compete from the perspective of compensation and benefits. But one of the things that i think is most important for agencies in the federal government to leverage in that competition is the purpose and the sense of being able to contribute to national security in a very clear indirect way by working through the federal government agencies that have an opportunity to impact cyber operations That the private sector does not you know. We don't engage in offensive behavior. We don't have the resources to scannon surveilled cyberspace. The way the federal government. Does we do what we can. But we are required in many ways to work through the federal government and so the point end of the spear in cyberspace really. Are those federal jobs where you can be engaged through either. The national security agency the department of homeland security the fbi all playing a really critical role to support the private sector in this area. So last question before. I open it up to the members talked me. You mentioned north korea. What are you see. We've discussed china and russia. What are the other national biggest national security threats. You see A and opinions that you share with your other. Ceo colleagues what. A ceo seat is the biggest national security threats. Right now. well. I would say it's not a single threat and that's the largest threat in and of itself the fact that we have to as a nation with our allies spread the resources of our intelligence and military apparatus across a wide spectrum of threats and we need to on one hand when thinking about russia and china have the ability to operate against highly sophisticated adversarial capabilities. But at the same viewing those conflicts as less likely and through more of a deterrence lens while realizing that terrorist activity is still a real and present threat and perhaps more likely on any given day and yet require a very different set of capabilities to counter because those series were not as sophisticated but could be highly effective if we aren't thoughtful about all being able to identify and defend against them and so the breadth of areas that we need to invest in as an industry that we need to remain Innovative is growing and the resources are not budgets. Are are basically flawed. I talked about how research and development is percent of. Gdp is lower in the last two decades than it was in the earlier part of the twenty century and so when we look at these issues in combination. It's not any one capability area that worries me. It's the breath and the speed at which we need to operate to stay ahead on so many fronts and you at this time i would like to invite members join our conversation with their questions reminder that this meeting is on the record and the operator will remind you how to join the question.

"Who knew green war and there's much written about the new our framework for the nuclear deterrent. That worked extremely well over. Many decades doesn't fit quite as well. Germs of the cyber wrong. Can you give us your thoughts on. How do we deter russia or any adversary in cyber realm such that they are reluctant to most criminal groups to act from their territory. State actors acting on their own. I stayed two. Things is essential in deterring in the cyberspace. The first is a whole of government approach to taking action when we see ad for seri behavior in cyberspace. That's outside what we believe. Is the norms now. First of all as we discussed earlier. There aren't a set of agreed upon norms for operating in cyberspace. Those in my view will only get constructed. As we see activities that we believe out abounds And we take action and that requires a whole of government approach because our national security apparatus is operating in cyberspace in a way to detect and take action against some of these behaviors where our Government through the department of justice has the mandate for taking the judiciary actions to hold adversaries accountable for those behaviors. We clearly need to work. The bounds of was happening outside the us. What's happening inside so involving. Nsa the department of justice and the department of homeland security in a very integrated way toehold adversaries accountable for their behaviors and cyberspace is essential. But i think the other thing that is really important as we consider operations in the cyber domain is that critical infrastructure which is not government controlled needs to invest in its own defenses and also be very open and information sharing with the federal government. So that we can Behave as not only a whole of government but an integrated critical infrastructure which is held in the private sector and government approach to dealing with adversary behavior in cyberspace. So we're through from an has many very sensitive classified eilly classified national security programs which is both a risk right from cyber perspective. How do you think about that. Risk your own networks. And how do you protect it. In age of solar wind and ransomware and colonial pipeline we are as significant target for adversaries nation states as well as criminal behavior and so we invest in this area and it is a boardroom topic. Our cybersecurity posture our plans for not only monitoring but continuing to stay ahead of the advanced threat which we feel is essential for company's operations and maintaining the trust that we have with the government so in order to do that it does require a top down. Commitment to cybersecurity is a priority putting some of our best resources on That area also looking at that risk as one that we put priority to financially invest. In and i just noted a very open approach to sharing information which has been essential for our industry to be able to have agreements with other. What would be competitors on one day but in the case of cyberspace or collaborators. So the other companies that operate in the aerospace and defense industry have nondisclosure agreements between ourselves to share openly. What we're seeing in our networks. And i encourage all industry executives if you aren't doing that within your industry to do so and it's nice to share information with those outside of your industry but what we have seen is that adversaries are so sophisticated that they're using different tactics techniques and procedures by industry knowing where Those industries are most vulnerable. And what the attack. Vectors are. so it's really cheap than a critical part of our defense to have this broad information sharing framework in place within the defense industrial base. The it's an incredible model for as you suggest other sectors. Can you talk about. How did it come together. How long has it been in place..

"About half of them are controlled by nato countries and therefore a significant portion of them are controlled by other nations and we don't necessarily have the laws of order in space that exist in other domains partly because of the novelty of space operations. So what i see is a focus for creating those norms for operating and there'll be a period of time were already operating in it today where that will be worked out through experimentation demonstration of capabilities and we see that happening With some of what could be our adversaries in particular china who has been very active in the space domain and so this was a topic of conversation amongst the nato countries at the summit a week ago in a really important one for our governments to create some alignment on with those norms should be for space operations. Mucus an example. What what are the areas rethink. Its open to discussion of norms. That could be beneficial for our security in that of our else. We'll space is getting more crowded. And so the first issue and foremost to safety in space that the assets the both able to operate freely and be protected from an adversary's intervention and this isn't a area that's particularly mature as it hasn't been an issue previously assets and space were thought to be some of the most protected and resilient just because they were operating so far from the surface as no longer the case and we can't take that distance as a method of security and resiliency so other ways have to be developed. I think the other area. We'll see significant. Investment by nations is the ability to help situational awareness in space. Track not only are assets that the output sued potential adversaries and keep our knowledge base about what is occurring in space just as we have in the other domains that we've talked about and you know we talked about air but i would say the same exists on the ground in the seas and now in cyberspace as well. You mentioned china. We heard a lot about a lot about concern for us. Losing our competitive edge technology. How do you think about.

Antares rocket launch at Wallops Flight Centre set for Sept. 29
"The Northrop Grumman Antares rocket with cygnus resupply spacecraft on board will head to space. Later this month launching from the mid Atlantic regional spaceport at NASA Wallops flight facility. The Antares launch is the company's Fourteenth Commercial Resupply Services Mission. Cygnus will deliver NASA science investigations, supplies, and equipment to the International Space Station highlights of space station research facilitated by this launch include a plant habitat for radishes the test of a biologic drug that could be used for the. Treatment of leukemia and the Universal Waste Management System. A new compact toilet that astronauts can use on deep space exploration missions a new three, hundred sixty degree virtual reality camera from a Montreal based film.

SpaceX wins NASA contract to send cargo to lunar Gateway with new Dragon XL craft
"NASA SPACEX are working together on the the freaking Moon Orbiter Right. So we have the same coming up in two thousand twenty four. Nasa is going to be landing people on the Moon in twenty twenty four the artist program and they have a lunar orbiter. It's a station. It's like a waystation that astronauts will go to before they go down to the moon so they'll dock with this thing and then they'll get resupplied get whatever they need to get done you know. Grab a bite. E whatever they gotta do and then they'll go down to the surface of the Moon in when they're done with the surface stuff whenever they're done with their silencing they're gonNA go back up to this orbital laboratory and do what they gotta do and then come back home back to Earth which is amazing. So that being said NASA has partnered with SPACEX AND SPACEX. Going to be making a capsule that goes to the resupply station or on the Moon. The deep space resupply. It's called the cargo dragon. Xl Cargo Dragon Xl. It's insane it's insane. This is actually happening right so we WANNA make sure that everybody knows what's going on the Dragon. Xl has been revealed and it is huge huge news for the Lunar Gateway. Because before this we didn't know what was going on. We didn't even know like a couple of weeks ago we didn't even able to lunar gateway was still going to be a thing. People that are in charge of the money for NASA or thinking. You know maybe we're GonNa pull some funding away. Maybe we don't need the lunar gateway. Maybe these people don't need a way station between the Earth and the moon but NASA today said. Hey we need this. We do need a lunar gateway and we're going to be hiring spacex to do artists contracts. So in their press release they say NASA has selected spacex of Hawthorne California as the first US commercial provider out of the gate logistics services contract to deliver cargo experiments at other supplies to the agency's Gateway in Lunar Orbit. The award is a significant step forward for Nasr's Artemis programme that will land the first woman in the next man on the Moon in twenty twenty four and build sustainable human lunar presence at the moon and his partners will gain the experience necessary to mount a historic human mission to Mars and Jim Brian Stein. Who's the head of NASA? The administrator? He says this contract award is another critical piece of our plan to return to the moon. Sustainably the gateway is the is the cornerstone of the long-term artists architecture and deep space commercial cargo capability integrates yet another human industry partner or American industry partner into our plans for human exploration in preparation for a future mission to Mars spacex his contract. How crazy is that space x kind new to this space stuff right? I mean they've been in a for a while but they're the new kid on the block. They haven't been around as long. As somebody like Boeing. They're not as big as somebody like the U. L. A. The aren't part of you. Know the normal kind of architecture like Northrop Grumman. Somebody like that spacex has been doing a lot of missions though. They've been sending a lot of things to the Space Station for a long time. They had twenty s missions to the space station. And they've done a great job that so because of those things they know. The SPACEX can make the craft that can supply the lunar orbiter the lunar gateway with the essentials for humans to go to the moon. And this is the Dragon. Xl It's awesome looking. Well it's pretty boring to be honest with you. It's cylinder and has you know solar ray solar wings if you will on either side and it's just basically cylinder but it doesn't need to look cool you know. It doesn't need the look amazing or sweet but it's very Trustworthy sure because when the star business thing and they get it to a place where SPACEX and Nassar happy with it. That's only four years away in these times that we're living in right now for years away. It's really not that far everyone So for years away something look forward to and they have to send supplies before the people get there and they have to make sure that this lunar gateway works before the people get to the moon so this is GonNa happen before for years. It'll happen probably in the next couple of years before anybody gets there they have to send stuff up there before People get there and they have to make sure they do the test to make sure that thing is capable of handling people while it's in lunar orbit the Lunar Gateway has to be in a good spot technically before people board the thing so they're going to get supplies up they're gonNA get people up there and then when they send the people to Lunar Gateway. Those people are going to go to the moon might even send people to the lunar gateway to be like. Hey we're in the lunar gateway and we're going to hang out here for a little bit to make sure this thing works and you know they're gonNA be there for a couple of days probably check it out and then go down to the mood. I'm not sure the timeline of what's going to happen. Because they haven't they haven't even released that yet. They're not one hundred percent sure but they have this huge gateway configuration in. It's GONNA turn out to be something like the International Space Station. They have ISA involved with this. The power and perform Propulsion they have international habitation module. They have robotic arms from Canada. They have another candidate arm. They have an Isa Orion Service Module They have a multipurpose module. They have Habitation modules from NASA all sorts of things going on at huge huge solar. Ray So this is going to be a big thing. It's going to be a big deal. So basically we have a space station which is lower here in his orbiting the earth right now and You know from there were. We've just been stuck in that orbit for a long time at the International Space Station. Haven't really gone farther than that. Other than Hubble a longtime since since the Space shuttle. So yeah. That's it's a new thing you know and it's going to be really awesome
Satellite almost on empty gets new life after space docking
"An interesting idea. It's from a division of Northrop Grumman and what measures one is is. It's a satellite that has a grappler so we can grab other things in space and a lot of fuel and the idea of the program is you can extend the life of satellite that has run out of fuel and his either GonNa be parked or de orbited depending on where it is And and here's the challenge. Satellites are not made with gas caps. They're not generally built to be serviced by other satellites. That doesn't generally happen So you can see what's going on here. North Grim thinks that there is a market in building a satellite that is cheaper to launch and use to extend the life of an older satellite than it would be replaced. That satellite right. It's just it's simple economics here. What if we could make that satellite of yours? That's about to die last another five years. How what would that be worth to you? And if that number is lower than or higher than the price we would charge. Let's say or something like that. You do the math you know like. Oh that's better. Let's do that. So that's what that's what one did a demo with an eighteen year old satellite from. Its until nine one What Intelsat did is moved into a different orbit? So was up there. They actually moved. Until set up to the mid one orbit taking it out of service in doing so and meth one docked with Intelsat nine and one so came a few grabbed it with its grappling system. It's docking system and is now in the process of or over the next month or two is going to push Intelsat back into an operational orbit it will go back in operation and it will have five years more life this eighteen year old satellite with with a buddy satellite attached to it at the end of the five year period when it when Intel sat thinks it's reached the end of its operational. Life is then going to raise it up to a graveyard orbit like we talked about last time where where it's higher orbit above Geo Stationary Orbit. Where there's not a lot of stuff and it doesn't matter if there's dead stuff up there it's not a big deal so they're gonNA they're gonNA push up to a graveyard orbit So that's awesome five years extra life by adding a buddy satellite that can keep it operational and That's not all the plan then is after five years is one will grapple and can go somewhere else and do it again with a different saddling. Reasonable Buddy satellite right as long as it's got propellant and it can grapple stuff it can get to what it needs to grapple. It could do this so you have to is also coming later this year. They're going to use it for a different intelsat satellite and the goal. This time is because you know they wasted propel underuse propellant in taking it out of service and taking it somewhere else to try this the next one. They're going to do it in place. They're literally going to just drive over to wear that. Intelsat. Satellite is while it's operational and just grab it and then extend its life by having new propellant ability to move and even though because generally what seems to be happening. I mean if something breaks something breaks this is not something with like robot surgery to fix up circuit board or something. Although I think a future this stuff is that but in the short term. It's this satellite is cost us. Hundreds of millions of dollars is incredibly expensive electronics. And the only thing. We're missing is propellant. Well that's what the system is. Basically doing is like we will send up a thing full propellant and attach and move your satellite around for you. The great idea until sat says the economics work for them. Which if the economics and work for until SAT IN FOR NORTH OF GRUMMIN? This is really cool. Because you're extending the life of this stuff. It's almost like recycling in outer space. Like you're extending the life of this and you can see how this could get way more complicated down the road in terms of allowing tele presence cars of satellites there. You know the further out. They are the more of a delay. There is but when when you think back to the Hubble missions where they had to fix the Hubble Space Telescope over the course of decades say that was a user serviceable astronaut serviceable thing or I s space walks. You can see and you and I actually saw at least one of these at at Johnson Space Center the experimenting with a robot that can crawl around on the outside of the space station and do repairs. You could also see that. Same kind of thing. Po- possibility for one of these mission extension vehicle satellites to be able to potentially even do repairs. Come you know come by do a repair mission. And if that costs less than replacing the satellite. It's totally worth it. So it was very exciting. There's a lot of this being talked about. Nasa has a plan to do a spacecraft. That's GonNa Attach to an old land sat satellite in low-earth-orbit and and do a connection these. The mavs are built for geostationary orbit. I believe there's a Japanese company that we've mentioned on this before that wants to make like a sticky like web or arm satellite. That can actually just kind of like run into space junk and a ten. Yeah stick to it so that it's no longer space debris so there's a lot of this. We're entering a phase where one of the opportunities business opportunities in space is and from a different angle. You see it with spacex reusing. Its vehicles reusing. Its its first stage is that you make this incredibly expensive satellite and you leave it up there and it's got a lifespan. And then it dies. And it's like a disposable satellite and now there are companies coming along and saying what if we could take that disposable satellite and make it recyclable instead and extend its life and then move it out of the way. It's it you know it makes access to space cheaper right because it means that the stuff is serviceable and presumably over time. My mind started to raise as I was reading the story like presumably over time you would end up with things like perhaps some standard equipment like standard actual docking attachment. And things like that. Where it's like can we all agree? That the satellite's going to have this thing on it so that one of these buddies can come up later and refuel it maybe or or attached to it and move it around but there's so much that's already up there so is they figured it out. Like where do you grab on? How do you hold on? Is it GonNa work and it seems to work. It's awesome

Singapore Airshow dealt Coronavirus blow
"We're in Singapore which is quite possibly the most unusual escher in our collective memories We are of course hit during a week. Where the corona virus has had an impact on Travel plans for those this coming. From China that would traditionally come to the show but also from others in the region including From from further further away including major exhibitors exhibited who have been somewhat nervous about attending the show. Let's talk about this a little bit. WHAT SUV attendance rates? Let's have we seen a decline with the major exhibitors. That didn't show up. Well I mean obviously the numbers significantly down we could see that for for ourselves. Almost immediately. I remember two years ago. This show it was like sort of piccadilly circus in the Russian to get through the the channels between Shell as and the exhibit will this year. There was no problem. That's all it was very easy. The other point was when we went up to the the Static on there was a lot of span space on the ramp The biggest hall of course. Being the absence of Boeing's ego demonstrator triple seventeen hundred which there were hoping to bring to the show in fatted sets off. They go to Tokyo But turned around when they Threat level was raised to orange just on just started so sadly significantly impacted of as far as I could. I'd say anyway. Well the defense side you know. It was a huge impact. Lockheed Martin Raytheon Northrop Grumman when all stayed home you know there was people from the Russian companies here but it was really a skeleton crew The Chinese accompanies were of course banned from coming obviously. Didn't stop the August. I demonstration team which made a surprise appearance last week with their j ten fighters so Yeah but there was a huge impact on offense but thinking about. That's a attending major astro since I think mid-nineteenth or so and it's the first ever that onto where nas been stat not stop stood in a single life right station not have security not whatever whatever that is we could have been empty. So that's it could be for Saturday's coming of the organizers. Say A set that eight percent of exhibitors contras but it was mostly powder the tooth because the nice two percent that did that did show up showed up with a much smaller group of people search. So for instance Abbas there but they sent a few people that they would so so. It's been depressing way unusual night and in and this huge challenges ahead full for aviation as a whole but particularly aviation in the region given the impact this is going to have on on on uncommissioned airlines yeah region. I mean if you looked at some figures here Check some days of the week or so so Normally the Chinese airlines around to tweet sixteen to eighteen thousand twice a day They've deccan the operation between five and six thousand seven days in the past week. So that's about a third of their schedule. Financial initial impact huge Don't forget there's a lot of airlines. That are highly dependent on Chinese Traffic Korean. CARIOCAS areas the airlines in Thailand which kind of missing Derek Young Group of international travelers. And so we've seen the fallout of this. Yeah will be casualties. On the way in the next two months people tend to compare where this SARS in twenty two thousand three but I actually tend to disagree with the thing that a lot of sense just because China's become so much bigger than they operate. Seven hundred aircraft craft now is four thousand so much bigger share of the building chapter nor competitions and in recovery phase face will be will be

The program is also a path to economic mobility in the first few years every student who completed the program was hired in the local schools. This program, demonstrates a synergistic dual nature of economic mobility native people, academics, expresses important equally important as to strengthen our community in Peshawar culture, is twin missions, individual and community are inseparable.

And the college to a mentor protege program to help us create the workforce and develop economic opportunities through that program. As new jobs, created the tribal colleges educate students to fill those positions. One of the ways we've created job creation, is that we need a pipeline of skilled workers because our high school dropout rates are too high and many students, where enrolling S K C unprepared for college stem courses, we developed dual credit at that wasn't enough. So we recently opened a stem academy for high school, juniors and seniors students take classes at their own high school in the morning, come to sailors college in the afternoon to complete their science and math courses. And then they are ready to enter stem programs and have doorways open for opportunities that they might not have had before the academy is already in second era of existence, demonstrating success Thurs strategy, is like this tribal colleges are transforming Nate.

And I will be followed by the ranking member, and then we'll alternate between the parties. If I could start with you, Dr VO home. You spent more than two decades working with tribal communities and. In higher education in Montana. And in my home, safe of California, and I know that, that includes working with adults who were trying to finish their GED and with rebound programs to improve college access. So I wonder if you could just share with us a little more really on a personal level. How your experience working in different facets of higher education, and in different tribal communities, influenced your approach to your rose presidents, sailors, Kuni college. What, what really mattered? Thank you. Madam chair what really matters is opportunity and assisting students to believe that they can, in fact accomplish anything that they set their minds to accomplish what we know is that having a various, and we know this through recent research and studies tribally we've known it for a long time, but only recently have have there been has there been research done in the area. But we know that south efficacy is an is a key piece in whether students will be successful more than GPA's more than. High school. Graduation, our predictive tests of entrance exams. If the student is committed and believes that they can accomplish their goal with support. They can we also know that a strong sense of who you are. And in our case that's around your tribal. Identity is also key to having students be successful in college in high school and in the workforce. So we know that that base connection to your culture at whatever level that is language dance song. Skilled. That is it creates what called predictive. Resilience the and protective factors that help students to navigate through difficult times. And you and does that come from individuals from teachers professors, etc? Or are there actually community members who helped contribute to that as well? It comes from all of those things. Yeah, thank you very much. Dr my hat. Canton. As we know universities are cultural hubs, and they are centers for the community as well as well. And people people want to be there. They want to experience the university in the community setting. I certainly. No, that's true for CS us, and I'm wondering how the university of Texas, we around valley insures, the local community is included in campus efforts to identify and address, local leads including demand for an educated workforce. How, how do they find their way to really having a meaningful impact on that process? Thank you so much. We have a variety of initiatives in which we strive to bring our community into our environment. One of the things that we've done is, we've tried to change the environment.
