IUP, along with a selected group of national universities, has been
awarded funding in the 2019–20 academic year from the Department of
Defense in support of the Cyber Scholarship Program.
The goal of this capacity-building project is to find additional ways to recruit more students to enter the cybersecurity workforce. This goal will be achieved through a unique blend of faculty development, hands-on workshops, and the continued cultivation of relationships with local community colleges. As a result, this project includes a number of workshops at community colleges in western Pennsylvania.
In these videos, students and faculty members talk about their experiences with the IUP Cybersecurity Workshops, which took place at Westmoreland County Community College and Penn Highlands Community College.
