Cybersecurity Education Consortium Includes UM Schools


Three United Methodist-related historically black colleges, Clark Atlanta University and Paine College, both in the North Georgia Conference, and Claflin University in South Carolina, will be part of a national cybersecurity education consortium announced last week by Vice President Joe Biden.

The program focuses on filling the critical need for skilled cybersecurity professionals while also diversifying the pipeline of talent in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics fields. The program includes a $25 million grant from the Department of Energy over the next five years for 13 historically black colleges and universities, two national labs, and a K-12 school district.
