Centers of Academic Excellence: A Case Study
January-February 2005 (vol. 3 no. 1)
pp. 62-65
Alec Yasinsac, Florida State University

Florida State University has been a leader in information assurance research and education since the US National Security Agency?s Centers of Academic Excellence (CAE) in Information Assurance Education program's early days (www.nsa.gov/ia/academia/acade00001.cfm). The program was originally designed to jump-start education of an information security workforce by providing incentives to academic institutions to form information assurance programs and to students by providing scholarships. It has since been augmented by scholarship programs from the US National Science Foundation (www.ehr.nsf.gov/ehr/DUE/programs/sfs/) and the US Department of Defense (www.defenselink.mil/nii/iasp). This article continues the discussion started in "Joining the Security Education Community" (IEEE Security & Privacy, Sept./Oct. 2004, pp. 61-63) by examining the growth of FSU?s information assurance program.
