A few weeks ago, I attended a talk by Dr. Timothy Shriver, son of R. Sargent Shriver and Eunice Kennedy Shriver, the couple who brought us the Peace Corps and the Special Olympics. His talk was inspiring and captivating. Dr. Shriver’s main message was that each of us is unique, precious, and adds valuable diversity to humanity.
This semester I have been reminded why I chose to be an academic. Despite the joy of research, the excitement of discovery, and the pride at recognition, the main reason I became an academic is to engage with students, particularly in the classroom.

Last week we proudly announced that next spring, Georgia Tech will launch its third online professional master’s program. The Online Master of Science in Cybersecurity (OMS Cybersecurity) program follows its successful predecessors — Computer Science (OMS CS) and Analytics (OMS Analytics) — launched in 2013 and 2017, respectively. It is worth a look back to see how we got here.
