By teaching others about Computer Information Systems, you will learn to develop advanced competencies and diagnostic skills to correct software problems. Mentorship in the CyberDay program, which is a collaborative effort between the College of Business (CoB) and the JMU Office of Admissions, will offer the opportunity to engage middle school students in game creation through programming that can be transferred to their cell phones. Share your excitement in the field of computer information systems and cultivate the interests of younger students in future business/technology related careers. 

According to Dr. Harry Reif, co-director of CyberCity, “The JMU mission has always been to educate leaders. Our students exemplify that mission by not only being leaders in their academic studies, but also by leading these visiting young people to promising technology careers.” 

A successful diversity program, CyberCity has provided learning experiences for over 500 students and 100 teachers. This event is open to all CIS majors, minors, and other students with the requisite skills. To get involved, contact Daphyne ThomasTom Dillon,  or Harry Reif

CyberDay events can be designed for up to 50 middle and high school students. If your school is interested, please contact Tom Dillon, Co-Director of CyberCity (dillontw@jmu.edu, 540-568-3015).
