Minority Cyber Inclusion Council


The Consortium Enabling Cybersecurity Opportunities & Research (CECOR) includes 13 HBCU/MSIs from across the nation.

The NIST Cybersecurity Workforce Framework “ANALYZE” knowledge, skills and ability are used to solve social science problems like poverty, housing displacement, program design and data functions.

The CECOR Consortium is creating a national cybersecurity workforce dedicated to ensuring national security

STEM Student Applied Cybersecurity Research

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.

U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development's (HUD's) Office of Policy Development and Research (PD&R) in partnership with Norfolk State University (NSU) and the Council Exchange Board of Trade (Council) co-created an Opportunity Zone Research Virtual Internship program.

Assignments are issued by HUD PD&R and  facilitated by the Council.  Student Cyber Researchers help collect, analyze, recommend, report and assist Council and NSU Principal Investigators. Creative strategies and solutions that enable innovations and foster a cohesive and economically healthy communities are sourced and researched.

Industry-led research is focused on the five key work-streams that converge federal government mission with opportunity zone and opportunity fund development, investments and community awareness.

Learning & Career Management

The Department of Energy established the Cybersecurity Workforce Pipeline Consortium with funding from the Minority Serving Institutions Partnerships Program housed in its National Nuclear Security Administration.


The Minority Serving Institutions Program focuses on building a strong pipeline of talent from minority-serving institutions to DOE labs, with a mix of research collaborations, involvement of DOE scientists in mentoring, teaching and curriculum development, and direct recruitment of students.

To be successful in the long term, this program is designed to be sufficiently flexible in its organization to reflect the unique regional priorities that Universities have in faculty research and developing STEM disciplines and skills, and federal government site targets for research and critical skill development.

The CECOR 2019 OppZone Virtual Internship is now underway with four federal challenge questions.  Internship is facilitated by the Council Exchange Board of Trade.
