Supporting Preparedness of Underrepresented Groups

Project staff participated in the Future Ready Conference held on November 18, 2022, for students of the Harry S.

Cybersecurity program were distributed to students during the conference. On December 2, 2022, William Tennent High School students and administrators visited the Bucks campus, and project staff provided information on cybersecurity opportunities. Additionally, staff have begun connecting with college personnel involved in the Veteran Services Department to identify additional pathways and opportunities for veteran students.
