Students expect the higher education institutions they attend to provide appropriate learning and technology support, along with security and privacy for the personal information they share with the institution.
Given the many reported system/data breaches, colleges and universities could clearly do a better job of protecting the student, faculty, and staff information entrusted to them.
Lessons in Leadership from one of Technology's "Hidden Figures"
I must admit that I am a real-life hidden figure – a girly geek with an affinity to infinity and an intense love of mathematics. Calculus is the field of mathematics which deals with change – specifically, the rate of change over time. But you don’t have to be a math geek to appreciate the perspectives of a leader’s calculus.
Role models are powerful. As a young girl, one of my favorite television programs was “I Dream of Jeannie,” a 1960s television show about a male astronaut who had a beautiful but impetuous female genie. I didn’t want to be the genie; I wanted to be the astronaut and fly to the moon. But I had never seen a near-sighted African-American female astronaut. My dream was seemingly cut short before it even began. I eventually did make my way to NASA, and now I’m passionate about providing role models for girls in STEM.
