Featured Cybersecurity Faculty

Dr. Jason Lewis
- Assistant Professor of Computer Science

I believe that teaching and learning are best achieved when faculty and students take an active approach, one that involves the two-way transfer of knowledge. When I teach, I prefer to have a lot of hands-on activities that reinforce the concepts that we are covering, that way students can “learn by doing”. I also like to incorporate a lot of discussions into my classroom so students can learn from each other’s unique experiences and perspectives.
