Incorporate OWASP into the following top 5 Universities, within the next 12 months by introducing OWASP training and education resources at University's events.

1) New York University 2) Cornell University 3) Princeton University 4) University of Minnesota 5) Columbia University

As a result of these initiative we would hope to see:

1) Confirming participation at arranged events 2) Asking Universities to recognize they are using our resources by allowing us to place their names in wiki pages such as 3) University faculty, staff and students participate in local and international events/meetings 4) University faculty, staff and students contribute to OWASP projects

Status 3 Universities already in contact with and planning OWASP events to participate in.
