“Leadership is a two-way street, loyalty up and loyalty down. Respect for one’s superiors, care for one’s crew.”

Happy Birthday to computing pioneer, Admiral Grace Hopper! 🥳 Hopper has been credited with creating the first computer compiler, a program that translates written instructions into code that computers read. The creation of the compiler led to Hopper co-developing the first computer programming language, COBOL (Common Business Operating Language).

Did you know Computer Science Education Week was created in recognition of Admiral Hopper’s birthday? Additionally our @girlswhocode club is named after Admiral Hopper and the work she’s done in the computing world - our girls call themselves the “CodeHoppers”. Thank you, Admiral Hopper, for your work in the computing world and being a great example of a woman in STEM! 👏🏼

Happy Computer Science Education Week! Why study computer science? Computing is transforming every industry, including medicine, the arts and business. There is still a huge job gap in computing related fields and not enough people to fill these jobs!

A knowledge of computing has become part of a well-rounded skill set for students in the 21st century, which is why @codeorg has created the Hour of Code. Hour of Code is an introduction to computer science, designed to demystify code and show that anyone can learn the basics, no matter how old or young you are. Check out the link in our bio to give one of these activities a try!

See what the internet would be like if girls didn’t code.

Happy Computer Science Education Week! Did you know that 26% of all coders are women? Our friends at Girls Who Code created this special site to showcase what the internet would look like without this 26% in the workforce.

Have you wanted to try coding activities? Several organizations, including Girls Who Code, have free activities for you to try your hand at coding this week! If you give any coding activities a try, share them to social media & tag us - Good luck!

The first week of December 2019 was a busy one for us! Almost a year ago to the date, we cemented our working relationship with @savannah_river_national_lab by signing an official Memorandum of Understanding (MOU). This MOU established a collaborative partnership with SRNL for future research and professional projects. Pictured from this partnership announcement are Dr. Vahid Majidi, Director of Savannah River National Lab (left) and our Dean, Dr. Alex Schwarzmann.

We can’t excel in educating the next generation of computer scientists and cybersecurity/information technology professionals without the great support from partners like SRNL and Clark Atlanta University, who we shared about yesterday. These community partners provide valuable resources and opportunities for our students to pursue and fully immerse themselves in their future line of work.

We look forward to growing and developing this partnership more in the years to come!

On this day last year, we announced a special partnership with Clark Atlanta University’s Department of Cyber Physical Systems! This partnership between our two institutions formed a framework for collaboration in training, research and other educational endeavors in the areas of cybersecurity and cyber-physical systems (CPS).

Georgia is quickly becoming a hotspot for the internet of things and CPS, which are transforming everything we do via smart networked systems designed to sense and interact with the physical world. Pictured from the partnership announcement are our Dean, Dr. Alex Schwarzmann and CAU President, Dr. George T. French Jr.

While the COVID-19 pandemic slowed down our work in developing this partnership further this year, we look forward to innovating together and growing this partnership in the years to come!

"This year has been challenging in many ways, but we have so much to be thankful for here in Jaguar Nation. You help make our campus a world-class destination for learning and healing, and I am proud of our campus community’s perseverance in following safety guidelines this semester. Just as we’ve worked hard to stay safe on campus, I want to remind you to continue those efforts as you celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday. We want everyone to finish the semester strong, so please remain vigilant in protecting yourself and those around you by following the 3 W’s: Wear a mask, Wash your hands and Watch your distance. Just as we have had to adjust to a “now normal” on campus, we may have to adjust our expectations for this holiday season in order to minimize the risk to our health and the health of others. I encourage you to check out the CDC’s additional safety tips for those who do choose to travel and alternate celebration ideas for Thanksgiving. We just finished a week which reminded us of the values that make Augusta University so special. As we enter this season of gratitude, we are specifically reminded of values of compassion and empathy. You have shown time and again that you all have a heart of service for others. With that in mind, I know you will do all you can to protect yourself and those around you this holiday season. Thank you once again for your continued perseverance in the face of this pandemic. I wish you all a restful holiday, and as always, Go Jags!" -President Brooks A. Keel, PhD
