Roosevelt University was represented at the Schaumburg Business Association (SBA) inaugural Technology Summit on November 15. Approximately 75 people attended the event which included a keynote address by an FBI special agent and sessions on corporate cyber vulnerability, additive manufacturing, and artificial intelligence.

Sivling Lam, graduate admission counselor for the College of Arts and Sciences, staffed an information table and spoke with members of the local business community about Roosevelt’s new BS in Cyber and Information Security degree and about our MS in Computer Science degree.

“Attending the SBA Technology Summit felt a lot like coming home since Roosevelt plays an integral role in providing educational access for Schaumburg and neighboring communities,” said Lam. “It was wonderful connecting with members of the SBA, many of whom are small business owners, to hear firsthand their concerns about protecting crucial and proprietary company information.”

One of the summit attendees remarked, “I’m grateful that Roosevelt is offering a degree in cyber and information security. Roosevelt is filling a much needed educational and training void to minimize and protect against cyber and security threats.”

The twin sisters, who immigrated from Mexico when they were five years old, will both graduate with the Bachelor of Arts in Sociology and were involved with myriad school activities during their time as Roosevelt students. They were able to answer some questions about this honor and how Roosevelt University opened doors for them to grow and flourish as both students and people.

Roosevelt University provides academic opportunities for students from all walks of life and is home to anyone who values education and inclusivity. While Frank Massolini (MA, ’18) may have taken quite a hiatus from being a Roosevelt University student, he “never forgot the fantastic experience” he had at Roosevelt and returned nearly 40 years later to finish his Master of Arts in Sociology — but not before traveling the world and helping others in his extensive career.
