One Thousand Days Transformed - The Campaign for Cedarville

Mission and Vision

The Center for the Advancement of Cybersecurity at Cedarville University will advance cybersecurity in our nation by developing tomorrow’s cyber leaders in the classroom, shaping cyber education in the academy, and promoting cyber awareness in society.

Cedarville's Center for the Advancement of Cybersecurity was established in 2018 when Cedarville faculty recognized the need to equip students for exceptional cybersecurity service while advancing the emerging field of cyber education. Both on and off campus, the Cyber Center provides cybersecurity expertise and promotes ongoing knowledge in the field.

Ultimately, the Center exists to glorify God by equipping His ambassadors for influence in the increasingly vital realm of cyberspace. The Center envisions itself, with the clarity, conviction, and character that arise from its Christian faith and values, advancing cybersecurity to the benefit of society.  Not only does the Cyber Center address the problems of the ever-evolving field of cybersecurity, but it is uniquely poised to provide leadership in its growth.
