A Message from the Club Officers
We are passionate about computing and cybersecurity and are active within the campus and the Madison community. This year, we have a bunch of educational presentations, activities, and volunteering opportunities planned. Our goal is to create a community of students excited about learning and impacting others in a highly demanding field. We hope to accomplish our goal and thrive by carrying out the CybHER club’s mission: to empower, motivate, and educate collegiate women in computing and cybersecurity. CybHER is open to everyone. We hope to see you at our events!
