Professional Development Offerings

Faculty Travel Support

CyberWatch West occasionally sponsors faculty from member schools to attend key cybersecurity events and conferences around the United States. Recently, the consortium was able to cover the travel expenses for select faculty to attend The Colloquium for Information Security Education (CISSE), the National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE) Conference & Expo, and the ICT Winter Conference in California. Often only faculty representing CyberWatch West educational members are eligible to apply for travel support. If your high school, college, or university is not yet a CyberWatch West member, apply today!

In 2016, CyberWatch West sponsored some faculty members' travel to the Winter ICT Educators' Conference in San Jose, CA; Community College Cyber Summit (3CS), in Pittsburgh, PA; and the NICE Conference and Expo in Kansas City, MO. Opportunities to apply for future travel scholarships will be announced through this website, social media, and email notifications.


Faculty Graduate Program

CyberWatch West is committed to building the regional capacity of highly qualified faculty at member institutions by encouraging faculty to pursue graduate studies in Information Assurance/ Security. As such, CyberWatch West has established a Faculty Graduate Program to enable faculty to apply for and receive financial support from CyberWatch West for graduate study in Information Assurance/Security.
