The Center for Minorities and People with Disabilities (CMD-IT) in collaboration with the Coalition to Diversity in Computing (CDC), AccessComputing, and the Computing Alliance for Hispanic-Serving Institutions (CAHSI), are organizing the 2015 Academic Careers Workshop for Underrepresented Participants (ACW 2015). The workshop is made possible by a grant from the National Science Foundation. The ACW targets senior graduate students, post-docs, and faculty at the level of assistant professor and associate professor in the broad area of computing.
ACW provides unique, tailored experiences for underrepresented ethnic minorities and people with disabilities on how to successfully climb the academic career ladder. Mentoring activities are critical for successful promotions in the professoriate. Additionally, the workshop features panels of diverse senior faculty, representatives from government agencies and industry.
CSU Dominguez Hills invites applications from individuals for the two positions of Full-Time Tenure Track Faculty in the Computer Science Department. The University seeks outstanding, innovative, and visionary leaders for the School; ones who are committed to promoting and fostering excellence in teaching, scholarship and service. Primarily, assistant professors are sought but senior ranks might be considered. The positions are available beginning August 2015.
Responsibilities include teaching, research, and service. Teaching duties may consist of day, evening, and weekend hours. Additional responsibilities include research and service consistent with the mission of the University, the college of Natural and Behavioral Sciences, and the department of Computer Science. Published research in support of this goal is expected and is a requirement for tenure and promotion.
The Computer Science Department
The department offers a B. S. degree program in Computer Science (accredited by CSAB/CSAC), a M.S. degree program in Computer Science, and a B. A. degree program in Computer Technology, and is planning to offer a B. S. degree program in Information Technology (pending approval) and a M.A. degree in Cyber Security. The department has a total of about 560 majors, and receives strong support from campus administrators and local industry. Departmental web page may be found at http://csc.csudh.edu.
As part of the Research and Development team working with a group of product managers, and engineers you will be responsible for the implementation and testing of specific software modules.

Thank you for applying to the Ronald E. McNair Post-baccalaureate Achievement Program also referred to as the “McNair Scholars Program”. The McNair Scholars Program is a very exciting and valuable opportunity to advance your academic career. Students planning to enroll in STEM fields for graduate study are especially encouraged to apply. However, students from all CSUDH majors are eligible. Applications for the 2014-2015 academic year are now being accepted and should be turned into the McNair office (LIB 4516) by November 1, 2014 for priority consideration. Applications received after November 1, 2014 will be considered only as space is available.

Recognizing the importance of cybersecurity awareness, the Department of Homeland Security leads National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM) annually in October. The Department is committed to raising cybersecurity awareness across the nation and to working across all levels of government, the private sector, and internationally to protect against and respond to cyber incidents. Now in its 11th year, NCSAM is designed to engage and educate public and private sector partners through events and initiatives with the goal of raising awareness about cybersecurity to increase the resiliency of the nation in the event of a cyber incident.
Since President Obama’s proclamation in 2004, NCSAM has been formally recognized by Congress, federal, state and local governments, as well as leaders from industry and academia. This united effort is necessary to maintain a cyberspace that is safer, more resilient, and remains a source of tremendous opportunity and growth for years to come.
Students should be in their Junior or Senior year next Fall 2015, as they would do a paid internship in summer 2015, and the scholarship would be for Fall Semester 2015/Spring Semester 2016. Plus they are paired with a mentor.
Graduating an increasing number of students from underrepresented communities with STEM skills is our top priority. STEM Advantage was established in 2012 by a group of business, technology and talent acquisition executives in Southern California who want to do their part to address the critical need for student support in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) careers.
The Pre/Regular Season’s registration is open from August 23 – September 20.
About the National Cyber League
The National Cyber League (NCL) was founded in May 2011 to provide an ongoing virtual training ground for collegiate students to develop, practice, and validate their cybersecurity skills. Using lab exercises designed around industry-recognized performance-based exam objectives and aligned with individual and team games, the NCL is a first-of-its-kind ongoing experiment in learning and gaming using next-generation high-fidelity simulation environments.
A delegation of Computer Science Students attended the Society for Advancement of Chicanos and Native Americans in Science (SACNAS) National Conference in San Antonio, Texas, October 3-6. Computer Science student Samori Price gave a poster presentation on “The Feasibility of Using Java Real-Time as the Execution Code for an AUV (autonomous underwater vehicle)”.
