In 2017 the American Center for Mobility (ACM) in partnership with 15 colleges and universities announced the creation of the Academic Consortium at ACM to train the next generation of high-tech talent.

Through the partnership the group looks to create educational pathways to train and prepare students to support automated vehicle testing and implementation. Members will identify workforce courses and training programs as well as recruitment opportunities, internships, co-ops and work study programs for Academic Consortium students.

Members of the Academic Consortium include:
