The CECOR Consortium is creating a national cybersecurity workforce dedicated to ensuring national security.
Cybersecurity graduate and undergraduate students research key questions in economic development, measurement and policy issues that require the critical workforce skills that are also required in the cybersecurity industry.
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, Office of Policy Development and Research (HUD-PD&R) and the Council Board of Exchange – Looking Forward Research & Development (Council) are working with HBCU Anchor Institutions for community resilience and Virtual HUD HBCU/MSI Virtual student research internships.
This partnership work to improve the economic sustainability of a targeted group of opportunity zones by empowering their residents with opportunities to achieve economic self-sufficiency via workforce development and job readiness and by harnessing the power of public and private organizations that impact educational outcomes.
Virtual Research Interns are managed by the Council and through University led partnerships like CECOR. Student assignments are in part inspired to discover evidence based program coordination or thrugh investigation of residents opportunities from traditional academic and career institutions to build a more resilient and inclusive community.
