The CISE seeks to establish partnerships and working agreements with both industry and academic institutions.
Academic Alliance Partners
The CISE has a concerted program to engage peer institutions in partnership efforts. The standard partnership agreements specifically indicate an agreement to share curriculum, faculty knowledge and work toward reciprocity of upper division credits - beyond that of the current University System of Georgia standards. To date the following institutions have signed on as Academic Alliance partners:
- Albany State University
- Augusta University
- Chattahoochee Technical College
- Columbus State University
- Gwinnett Technical College
- Fountainhead College of Technology
- Middle Georgia State College
- Savannah State University
- University of South Florida, Sarasota-Manatee

The CISE also seeks to establish working agreements with regional industry partners to facilitate the exchange of information security information and development of formal relationships to support Center activities. We work closely with our industry partners to facilitate student internships, provide research and educational work products, and collaborate on information exchanges. To date the following organizations have established partnerships:
- Security Executive Council
- SunTrust Bank
Many of the activities conducted by the Center are only possible through the generosity of our sponsors. Depending on the event, we may need physical volunteers to serve as competition judges, guest speakers, or external supporters. In many cases financial and in-kind donations are the key to successful events. If you or your organization is interested in supporting a Center event, please contact us.
