Hodges Professor Named to Technology Board
Professor Tracey Lanham, program chair of the Computer Information Technology programs in the Fisher School of Technology at Hodges University, has been named to the Southwest Florida Regional Technology Partnership (SWFRTP) Board of Directors.
“This is a rather significant honor for Professor Lanham to be appointed to this board,” said Dr. Al Ball, dean of the Fisher School of Technology. “Tracey has been fully engaged in the community to further the initiative to get more girls and women interested in technology fields of study in support of their pursuit of technology careers. With her expertise in and passion for technology, she will be an asset to this very distinguished and honored board.”
The SWFRTP was chartered in 2008 and is comprised of technology companies and technology users, economic development groups and higher education institutions which are united to promote and expand the regional technology sector through seminars, forums and educational programs; and to represent the interests of the regional technology sector before federal, state and local government agencies.
Professor Lanham joined Hodges University’s Fisher School of Technology in 2009, teaching both on campus and online. Professor Lanham also complements her teaching skills by running a programming summer camp for middle school girls.
Professor Lanham received her Associate, Bachelor and Master's degrees in Computer Information Technology from Hodges University, all with Summa Cum Laude honors. In 2004 she was the first and only female in the first graduating class of the Master of Science in Computer Information Technology program. Tracey is currently pursuing her Ph.D. at Northcentral University.
