SEIDENBERG NAMING SPARKS MEDIA ATTENTION

 

The receipt of a $15 million gift and the subsequent naming of the school in honor of the donor, Ivan G. Seidenberg, Pace trustee and alumnus, and chairman and CEO of Verizon Communications, Inc., have generated a great deal of interest on the part of the media.

On October 14, 2005, the Wall Street Journal announced the gift in the "Gift of the Week: Tech Support" column. Other publications including the Westchester County Business Journal and the Journal News followed suit with impressive photos and lengthy articles about the school, its dean, and how the monies are to be spent.

SEIDENBERG - ONLY SCHOOL IN THE U.S. TO RECEIVE
IBM BLADECENTER GRANT

Through the efforts of Dr. Lixin Tao, Computer Science, and Dr. Christelle Scharff, Computer Science, the Seidenberg School is one of only two academic institutions to be awarded a BladeCenter system from IBM. The other is in St. Petersburg, Russia! A BladeCenter, consisting of a few compact chassis that host many powerful server CPUs, provides infrastructure in support of high-performance, server-side computing. The BladeCenter will be used to enhance two existing courses - CS 644 Internet Computing with Distributed Components and CS 646 Enterprise System Integration with Web Services - as well as a new course in Grid Computing to be offered in Summer 2006.
