1 Corporate Social Responsibility Education and technology are two of our greatest social equalizers. As the worldwide leader in networking, Cisco knows technology can be used to improve access to education. Education can improve individual economic opportunities, helping to create a relevant, strong workforce and advance the economy. Cisco delivers education programs through partnerships with private and public organizations. Now in its 15 th year, Cisco Academy is the largest of these programs, partnering with over 10,000 education organizations in 165 countries to reach over 1 million active students. With the growing demand for ICT professionals, Academy is providing the skills to design, build, manage and secure computer networks, including the career-ready soft skills employers require. Students learn through classroom instruction, online materials and interactive tools, and hands-on experience. As organizations become increasingly reliant on intelligent networks and innovative workers, Cisco and our partners are helping prepare the global workforce of the future. The Impact in 3,564 students taught in ,501 students since inception 36 organizations offering Cisco ICT courses 67 instructors preparing the ICT workforce 9.96 Million estimated in-kind contribution to education you + networks = impact 2013 Cisco and/or its affiliates.

2 Academy Impact Profile 2013 Preparing Today s Students for Tomorrow s Challenges For a competitive and sustainable economy, the United States must have a skilled and well-trained workforce that can meet the evolving needs of industry. Students must now acquire problem-solving and critical-thinking skills, in addition to specific job-related expertise, to reach their full potential as a vital work resource. The growth of global networks has resulted in a shortage of people qualified to design, build, manage and secure the information infrastructure needed to do business, support communications, and even save lives. Every business, school, hospital, nonprofit, and other organization that relies on intelligent networks needs trained professionals to keep them running and secure. A workforce that is well-schooled in information and communications technology (ICT) and engineering can spur innovation across many industries, which in turn inspires additional opportunities to fuel productivity and economic growth. ICT investments are expected to play a major role in generating stable, high-paying jobs and boosting the nation s GDP. An Innovative Education Program that Supports Standards Cisco Academy is a technology education program that partners with public and private organizations to provide the knowledge and skills required for career- and college-ready students. Students acquire basic-to-advanced knowledge of information communications technology and learn networking skills. They develop the analytic, teamwork, and efficiency skills and the self-confidence that are so essential in the 21st century, both in the job world and in college. Coursework reflects all STEM Cluster Topics, and teaches many of the reading and writing Common Core Standards for technical subjects. College-ready students strengthen their understanding of technology, as well as math, science, and engineering concepts, improving success in their advanced studies. Career-ready students prepare for globally recognized certifications. Cisco is the first vendor to offer a robust networking certification portfolio that meets the ANSI accreditation standard. Yahoo! Finance 1/16/2013 Most of my students get multiple job offers before they even graduate. David Kotfila, Director/Instructor, Rennselaer Polytechnic Institute, NY Technical and Career-Ready Skills Courses include IT Essentials, Cisco CCNA (Cisco Certified Associate), CCNA Security, and the more advanced Cisco CCNP (Cisco Certified Professional). With a focus on learning technical skills, the instructional approach encourages student engagement and the ability to synthesize what they learn and apply it in other contexts. Course content integrates four skill areas identified by education researchers as critical for 21st century workers: Problem solving and decision making: Students practice and test their knowledge by configuring and troubleshooting networks using hands-on labs and simulation software; real-world scenarios develop advanced problem-solving techniques. Creative and critical thinking: Students understand the how and why of networking by combining hands-on learning with conceptual and analytical exercises. Collaboration, communication, and negotiation: Students acquire individual and teamwork skills by performing lab exercises and practicing problem solving within business scenarios. Intellectual curiosity and information handling: Students develop the ability to locate, select, structure, and evaluate information. Courses also prepare and motivate students to pursue further education or certification. Many go on to apply their skills on the job or in their own businesses Cisco and/or its affiliates.

3 Academy Impact Profile 2013 Comprehensive Curricula with Communities of Support Each course is free to not-for-profit organizations and includes instructor-led course content, lab exercises, simulation software, skills assessments, case studies, gaming, interactive teaching guides, and grade books. All materials are available to instructors online with 24/7 support. Unique to Academy is our focus on instructor professional development, and the creation of communities to support both instructors and students. Instructors receive training prior to teaching their first class, and many free professional development opportunities throughout the year. Cisco hosts peer communities that enable instructors to collaborate and share best practices, online and in person. Students have access to skills competitions and a global network of peers to troubleshoot coursework and prepare for exams, while also mentoring and encouraging one another. A High Demand for ICT Skills Although economic downturns hinder most employment sectors, ICT professionals enjoy a continuously increasing demand because of exponential growth in technology and related services. is expected to be the second fastest growing ICT area in the United States, faster than the average for all occupations, as we continue to invest in cloud and mobile networks U.S. Employment Predictions % + 22% + 22% + 18% + 18% +22% +14% 443, , , , ,700 All Computer Info Sec Analysts, Computer Comp and Systems Web Developers, Support Info Systems Analysts Network Architects Specialists Managers Network and Computer Systems Architects/Admins 2020 Employment Predictions % + 15% + 11% + 10% + 14% Computer Occupations 1 Source: US Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics, 2 Source: Dept. of Employment & Econ.

5 2013 Academy Impact Profile United States Academy Impact Story During a recent recession, Chris Angerhofer found himself under-employed and looking for a new line of work. His mother and sister both worked in ICT. They encouraged me to go back to school, complete my associate s degree, and study network administration. I had been a mechanic, and I was used to troubleshooting problems, starting at the top and working down to an individual component. It was going to be a good fit. Chris enrolled at Inver Hills Community College, where his academy instructors urged him to pursue a Cisco CCNA certification. My Cisco instructor was right about the certification. I would not have gotten the interview for my current job without it. I would urge anyone considering a career in networking to get a certification. Don t wait for the perfect time or easy approach to change your life just get started. Chris interviewed with Medtronic, a global medical device manufacturer operating 14 facilities in with more than 7,000 employees. Their Cardiac Rhythm Management group is the largest of Medtronic s five business organizations, and the company had recently opened a new facility in Mounds View. Chris approached the interview as he had his school work with fierce determination. He studied for it, and arrived early just in case. A week later, he was offered the job. Chris is an Associate Network Analyst in the Medtronic Network Operations Center. He and his team manage a network that services over 13,800 employees around the world. Even with a new career and a renewed sense of job security, Chris is not finished with his education. Still working full-time at Medtronic, he went on to take the Cisco CCNP course, and plans to take the certification exam. Chris expects to transfer to Metropolitan State University, Saint Paul, and earn a B.S. in computer science, as well as other Cisco certifications. Learn More See videos and success stories.
