“The past two years have been extremely competitive for the School of Computer Science and Mathematics. Not only were we competing with COVID-19, we were also contending with other universities and industry to attract new faculty talent in Cybersecurity, Artificial Intelligence, Data Science and Applied Mathematics. We were fortunate to be able to recruit a well-qualified, highly diverse, and enthusiastic faculty group. Our students will benefit greatly from them.”

- Dr. Roger Norton
Dean, School of Computer Science and Mathematics
