George Mason President Alan Merten has been recognized by Federal Computer Week magazine as one of this year’s “Federal 100 Winners.” The honorees were selected for their efforts on behalf of the information technology (IT) field. These people, the magazine says, “improve the way government works, delivers services, and fundamentally improves not only Americans’ lives but also those of people worldwide.”
Merten was singled out for leading George Mason to a prominent position in IT research, culminating in the National Security Agency’s designation of the university as a Center of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance Education. Merten was also recognized for his role as chair of a National Academy of Sciences committee that examined IT workforce issues.
