The Software Engineering Institute1 (SEI) seeks to transition courseware, materials and a survivability and information assurance curriculum to various departments at institutions of higher education, with a particular focus on Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs) and community colleges. Rather than build an infrastructure to accomplish this, the SEI utilizes partnerships which leverage the strengths of the SEI and the strengths of the partner educational institutions and builds upon existing trusted relationships and infrastructure, and sustains the incorporation of new and evolving materials. Leveraging other complementary programs, events and organizations broadens the offering and makes it more cost effective to all parties concerned. Over the past three years, the SEI has developed a four-pronged approach for its educational outreach in information assurance, with the goal of increasing the educational IA capacity.
