Professor Tracey Lanham has a long-standing relationship with Hodges University. Not only is she an alumna, but she serves as the associate dean of the Fisher School of Technology, and program chair of the Computer Information Technology program. She has been with the university since the fall of 2009.

Currently pursuing a doctorate at Northcentral University, she has spent many years in adult education, as well as devoted her time to becoming engaged in the community to further the initiative to inspire more girls and women to become interested and involved in technology fields of study.

As the coordinator for the Aspirations in Computing Award for the Southwest Florida region, she works closely with the National Center for Women and Information Technology (NCWIT) to provide opportunities and encouragement to young women in high school who excel in technology and leadership within their communities. In an effort to engage girls in technology, she oversees AspireIT camps, utilizing a peer teaching experience to teach middle school girls app and game development throughout the summer. Her goal is that by providing an array of technology focused activities and learning experiences, she can increase the representation and retention of women and minorities in technology-based careers, ultimately providing a more diverse workforce in the global economy.
