Colorado Technical University was recently recognized as a Purple Heart University by the Military Order of the Purple Heart (MOPH). CTU was acknowledged for its support of military members, veterans, their families and the community. The Purple Heart University recognition is a testament to CTU’s work to create and maintain a higher education institution that is supportive and accessible for all military members, both during and after service.

To honor its military roots, each year CTU provides 50 full-tuition scholarship opportunities to its military student population. Since 2008, the University has awarded over $10.5 million in scholarships to wounded warriors and their families and caregivers. The Patriot Scholarship, formerly known as the CTU Wounded Warrior Scholarship, gives back to those whose lives have been altered due to injury while serving in the U.S. Armed Forces.

Liberty University is developing programs to meet cyber security needs. Over the past 30 years, technology has become a central part of the everyday lives of people around the world. Although technology is extremely useful and convenient, it has also opened up a new world of cyber-crime. As a result, every major organization in the world is in need of individuals who have the ability to fight hackers and defend the technological integrity of their companies.

In an effort to help meet this need, Liberty University has been working to develop our own cyber security degree programs. The Department of Homeland Security and National Security Agency have designated Liberty University as a National Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense Education for the B.S. in Information Technology with Data Networking and Security Cognate. Additionally, we are proud to now offer a M.S. in Cyber Security.

If you desire to become an expert in the field of Cyber Security, contact our admissions office at 1-800-424-9595 to speak with an admissions counselor or visit our website at www.liberty.edu to learn more.
