It is with great pleasure and pride to announce that Regis University’s School of Computer & Information Sciences has been re-designated by the National Security Agency (NSA) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) as a National Center of Excellence in Information Systems Security Education (CAEIAE).
Regis was first designated as CAEIAE in 2007 as the second institution in the State of Colorado to carry this honor (The US Air Force Academy was the first institution).
This designation covers academic years 2012 through 2017, and will allow us to continue receiving funding that supports our Information Assurance (IA) curriculum, students, and infrastructure.
The re-designation is the outcome of a rigorous review of our Information Assurance curriculum and is a testament of the high quality of educational experience that our students receive. As one the reviewers noted, “Regis University’s IA degree programs prepare students to enter/re-enter the workforce at a much higher competitive level.”
Regis University will be recognized with an official certificate of designation during the 16th Annual Conference of the Colloquium for Information Systems Security Education on June 11, 2012, in Lake Buena Vista, Florida and Regis’ curriculum will continue to carry the NSA and DHS seals. Additionally, NSA will be sending official letters of notification about Regis’ designation to Colorado’s governor, members of congress, and appropriate congressional committees.
