Loyola Faculty-Student Team Completes NSF-Funded Project

Laurel Yohe and Kourtni Marshall presenting at Joliet Junior College

Three Loyola undergraduates have joined with computer science professor Dr. Ronald Greenberg to complete a "Community Building Team" project under a National Science Foundation grant program. The three students are

  • Alex Hemard, Senior Computer Science major
  • Kourtni Marshall, Senior Computer Science major
  • Laurel Yohe, Sophomore Bioinformatics major

 

This community building team completed a series of interviews with representatives of local companies that employ information technology professionals. The main goal of these discussions was to learn more about local corporate needs and garner suggestions on how local universities can better prepare students for the IT workforce.

This project was funded as part of an NSF grant in the CPATH program (Computer & Information Science & Engineering Directorate's "Pathways to Revitalized Undergraduate Computing Education"). A culminating presentation "Bridging the Gap between universities and IT Companies" was made at a meeting of other CB Teams and other participants at Joliet Junior College on March 27, 2009; all presentations are available at the web site of the grant: CNS-0722301, "CPATH CB: Content and Context: Building Collaborative Partnerships in Higher Education and Industry", Karen D'Arcy (PI), Linda Phaire-Washington (Co-PI), Xueqing (Clare) Tang (Co-PI), and Soon-Ok Park (Co-PI).
