Palm Desert iHub, is a new digital hub launched as a collaboration between the city of Palm Desert, the Coachella Valley Economic Partnership, and Cal State San Bernardino. This opens up new academic programs for the Coachella Valley as the digital hub will initially offer three university programs in Cybersecurity, Entrepreneurship, and Hospitality Management.

“The addition of these three state-of-the-art programs will greatly enhance our Palm Desert Campus and give our students much needed experience and opportunities that will help them after graduation as they start their careers,”.

The City of Palm Desert contributed $1.4M to the Palm Desert iHub facility and pays $175k annually to CVEP to manage the property and program.

Finding Hidden Cybersecurity Talent in Coachella Valley

America needs 500k cyber security professionals to fill its talent gap, we reported in September this year. CSUSB aims to address this gap head-on.

“Our expansion to the Palm Desert Campus is another part of our efforts to tap hidden talents and help solve the national cybersecurity workforce crisis,” .

In September this year, “the Cal State University, San Bernardino received a $3.8M grant from the National Science Foundation. The grant aims to help CSUSB continue its CyberCorps: Scholarship for Service Program“.

Apart from CSUSB’s role in launching this iHub in the Coachella Valley, other entities like The Palm Desert City Council played a vital role in making this happen. The City Council provided $175,000 to fund the iHub building lease and utility bills in 2018. In addition, the City of Palm Desert put $1.4 million into the Palm Desert iHub facility and pays $175k annually to CVEP to manage the property and program.
