CSIS STUDENTS STUDY SECURITY ABROAD

In an effort to broaden students' perspectives in a global economy, CSIS is offering travel courses abroad. During spring break in mid-March, 12 students enrolled in International Perspectives on Network Security traveled to the United Kingdom to participate in corporate and university seminars focusing on network security issues to learn how they are dealt with there.

The trip, led by Dr. Daniel Farkas, information systems, and Dr. Narayan Murthy, computer science, included sightseeing in London and a visit to Bletchley Park, the site where German secret codes were broken by the Allies during World War II. Other travel courses are planned for the future including one to India in January 2006 to learn firsthand about outsourcing.



CHILDREN'S HOPE FOUNDATION SHOW SET FOR MAY 5

CSIS and the Center for Community Outreach, a center dedicated to encouraging students to become involved in community service during their years at Pace and thereafter, will host the Children's Hope Foundation Social Networking Show on Thursday, May 5, from 1 - 5 pm in the Michael Schimmel Center for the Arts on the downtown campus.

The purpose of the event is to educate attendees about the Foundation's mission of assisting AIDS afflicted children in lower Manhattan and to showcase the Web site and social networking technology implemented by students in Dr. James Lawler's undergraduate CIS 102W Civic Engagement Web Design for Nonprofit Organizations course.



INTERGENERATIONAL EVENT HELPS TO BRIDGE THE DIGITAL DIVIDE

In keeping with the University's goal of promoting civic engagement and the School's longstanding commitment to community outreach, a group of CSIS students, led by Dr. Jean Coppola, technology systems, volunteered to share their knowledge of computer applications with senior citizens in attendance at the "My Second Home" adult day care center in Mt. Kisco, NY.

The students assisted the seniors in creating personalized greeting cards using photos that they were asked in advance to provide. The intergenerational event was rewarding for both the volunteers who had the opportunity to teach and help seniors, and the seniors who created something special to share with their loved ones.
