Global Education Committee
About the Global Education Committee
The Global Education Committee was created during the OWASP EU Summit in Portugal 2008. The primary purpose of the Global Education Committee is: to work with the OWASP Education Project to provide educational materials for both internal and external users, develop liaisons with educational institutions worldwide.
Provide awareness, training and educational services to corporate, government and educational institutions on application security.
Make OWASP educational material globally available as a well known resource in easily consumable form mapped to a framework tied specifically to user roles and responsibilities

3 Universities already in contact with and planning OWASP events to participate in.
| 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 http://www.owasp.org/index.php/OWASP_Top_Ten_Project 3) University faculty, staff and students participate in local and international events/meetings 4) University faculty, staff and students contribute to OWASP projects
