"Yonkers Rising" featured Pace University's Camp CryptoBot in "Pace's Cybersecurity Camp Inspires Next Generation"

Utilizing underwater robots, aerial drones and cutting-edge coding techniques, 50 high school students from throughout the region have gained hands-on cybersecurity experience as part of Pace University’s Camp CryptoBot.

Inspired by a mission to motivate younger students to pursue cybersecurity – especially women and those from underserved areas – the camp is supported by the National Security Agency (NSA) and the National Science Foundation as part of the national GenCyber program. Earlier in July, Pace University also hosted a two-week cybersecurity workshop for teachers to help facilitate the integration of cybersecurity concepts into lessons and after-school activities.

“Pace University’s commitment to cybersecurity education benefits the whole nation. Everything we do today has a cybersecurity component to it,” said NSA National Cryptologic School Commandant Diane M. Janosek. “GenCyber gives students the opportunity to learn about the role cybersecurity plays in their daily lives and encourages them to consider working in this field.”

“By 2020, it’s estimated that up to 2 million unfilled cybersecurity positions will exist in the United States. From national security to personal privacy, this shortage poses a critical threat to our society – but also an opportunity for students,” said Professor Pauline Mosley, who spearheaded the camp on behalf of Pace University’s Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems. “Pace University is committed to closing that gap by inspiring younger students to pursue cybersecurity and by equipping teachers with the resources they need to incorporate these lessons.”

“Yonkers Rising” featured the College of Health Professions in “Earn an Occupational Therapy Degree at Pace”

Pace University’s College of Health Professions (CHP) is launching a new Master of Science in Occupational Therapy, its sixth graduate degree launched in two years. The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects a 24% increase in the employment of occupational therapists by 2026. The MS in Occupational Therapy at Pace is designed to meet the needs of this rapidly growing field and produce competent and ethical practitioners. The program offers a unique hybrid learning approach, combining both online and face-to-face instruction; allowing students flexibility and preparing them for exciting careers in Occupational Therapy.

CHP’s 28-month, 70 credit program will utilize technology, evidence-based practice, and hands-on experience to equip students with the capabilities to maximize clients’ quality of life and occupation engagement. This model allows students to begin applying their skills and knowledge outside of the classroom.

Students in the program will utilize a technologically advanced anatomy visualization system and practice in a variety of simulated settings including a model apartment. Students will share CHP’s Interprofessional Center for Healthcare Simulation with other health professions specialties providing opportunities to collaborate with other disciplines.

Supawadee Lee, Ph.D., M.S., M.A., O.T.R./L., S.I.P.T., a licensed pediatric occupational therapist, educator, and researcher is the Founding Program Director and Assistant Professor of the Occupational Therapy program. According to Lee, “Our MSOT program aims to educate and empower students to become critical thinkers and life-long learners through engaging in hands-on, problem-solving, and active learning experience that incorporate clinical simulations, case-based method, and real-life experience.”

College of Health Professions Dean Harriet R. Feldman, Ph.D., R.N., F.A.A.N. said, “We are so excited to add this important professional program to our growing College of Health Professions. Occupational Therapy students will work alongside professionals in Nursing, Physician Assistant, and Nutrition and Dietetics students on our Pleasantville Campus and interact with students in Communication Sciences and Disorders in New York City. To round out our interprofessional set of programs, the undergraduate Health Science students will have a growing set of graduate programs to aspire to.”

This program is currently accepting applications for fall 2019, effective immediately. To learn more about the program or to apply for fall, visit www.pace.edu/ot.
