UCCS Partners with Army Reserve on P3 Cyber Program
On February 10, UCCS joined the Army Reserve, five other top-tier universities and 12 employers in an effort to create future cyber warriors. The Army Reserve Cyber Private Public Partnership (Cyber P3) brought together leaders of industry and academia with lawmakers on Capitol Hill to address a critical need for expertise in the cyber domain. The goal of the program is to train and educate Army Reserve Soldiers to be elite cyber security professionals through classroom work and field experience.
University partners are: University of Washington, Norwich University, George Mason University, Drexel University, UCCS, and University of Texas at San Antonio.
Corporate partners include: Rackspace U.S. Inc., Verizon Communications Inc., Microsoft Corp., Professional Project Services Inc. (Pro2Serve), Chevron Corp. and CALIBRE Systems.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation is also a partner in this effort.
Congressman Doug Lamborn also stopped by to show his support for this exciting event.
Retired Army Lt. General Edward G Anderson III, who leads grant and contract development for the National Institute of Science, Space and Security Centers at UCCS, and Martin Wood, Senior Vice Chancellor for University Advancement and Development, represented UCCS at the signing in Washington, DC.
