About Montreat College and the Carolina Cyber Center:
Montreat College is a Christian liberal arts college accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools to offer masters, bachelors, and associates degrees. The main campus is in the Blue Ridge Mountains fifteen miles east of Asheville, North Carolina, a region recognized as one of the most attractive living environments in the United States. Satellite campuses in Asheville, Charlotte, and other sites supplement the main campus.

The Carolina Cyber Center began as a vision from Dr. Paul Maurer, President of Montreat College, in 2018 to leverage the tremendous progress Montreat College made with its cybersecurity education program (e.g., enrollment growth, highly qualified/experienced professors, CAE designation from NSA/DHS, MOU with the U.S. Army). Montreat College provided initial funding for C3, and in 2019 the State of North Carolina provided additional funding, and in late 2020 we were awarded several new grants providing multi-year funding. The Center's vision is to be a national demonstration resource for developing community cyber awareness, ethical cybersecurity professionals, and public/private partnerships to advance the "state of practice" in cybersecurity.
