Collaboration in Education

How We Collaborate

Professional Development and Collaboration

Higher Ed Roundtables are conducted three times per year to provide professional development opportunities to the higher ed community and to increase collaboration. We encourage participants to bring their colleagues from other institutions. Institutions may participate in Cross Registration to offer students more opportunities for cyber education.


Partnerships and discussions between CinDay, industries, and individual institutions give rise to new courses and degree programs that will produce a high-quality workforce to meet the growing industry demand.

Pathways for Students

Our team updates Degree Finder with new cyber courses and degrees to help employers identify where to find new cyber talent. SOCHEintern establishes relationships with industries, institutions, and students to create internship opportunities for current college students. SOCHE Engage establishes relationships with the K-12 community to help increase career awareness and strengthen the future pipeline.

Learning and Networking Opportunities

Institutions and industry hold and attend events that provide all students experiential learning opportunities. Each CinDay Cyber member institution holds at least one Hack-a-thon event per year that is open to all colleges, industry professionals, and students of any age. All CinDay Cyber and regional cyber events are included on the events page.
