We are excited to introduce our new engagement program for CWIT and Cyber Affiliates! This program is designed to help give you a more well-rounded experience with our programs and prepare you with the skill sets of a budding professional.

The events that we have planned for this semester are centered around 4 categories:

  1. Community Building – Orange

  2. Academic Success – Purple

  3. Professional Development – Blue

  4. Outreach, Volunteering & Planning – Green

We encourage you to attend at least one of each category for the ultimate CWIT experience. The type of prizes you could receive is based on your level of attendance as followed:

  • Level 1 (attend one event in each of the first three categories): Earn your CWIT Affiliates T-Shirt
  • Level 2 (reach Level 1 + participate in peer mentoring or other Category 4 activity):  Earn your CWIT Affiliates Drawstring Bag
  • Level 3 (reach Level 2 + participate in an additional Category 4 activity): Choose Your Swag (from what is available in the CWIT office)
  • Level 4 (reach Level 3 + another Category 4 activity + attend two additional events from any category):  Receive a certificate as well as recognition at an end of the school year event.

After receiving an email on your new level, come by the CWIT office to claim your prize!
