Establishment of ACM
Undergraduate Computer Science and Graduate Information Security Students have joined forces to launch a local chapter of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM). ACM is a world-renowned organization of computer professionals who share their passion and knowledge for computer and data systems. Lewis is proud to have its very own student chapter of this prestigious organization. Twenty-two new members attended the first meeting on Monday, April 30, to discuss plans for next year. The group elected officers, including Muhanned Al-Aqili, Graduate Student in Information Security, as President; and Computer Science students Brian Wilhelm, Rob Granko, and David Tennant as Vice-President, Treasurer, and Recorder, respectively. The group decided to add subcommittees for community service and marketing and communications. Next year, the group will invite industry experts to campus as part of ACM's guest speaker program. You can learn more by joining the Lewis University ACM Chapter on Facebook, or, eventually, by checking out the group's website, which is currently being built.
