Computer Information Systems Faculty

Computer Information Systems (CIS) is a program in the Math and Professional Studies Department and is staffed with a department dean, Brenda McAleer, dedicated faculty with academic credentials and industry experience, and skilled administrative support personnel on both the Augusta and Bangor campuses.

The faculty regularly attends seminars, participates in professional development activities, and networks with other faculty in the information technology field. 

The faculty in the CIS program serve as student advisors, assisting students in making informed class selections. The CIS program offers a variety of programming, systems analysis, networking, Web design and development, and information technology classes. 

In tandem with her faculty position, Professor Kokoska is the Program Coordinator and oversees the day-to-day operation of the CIS program. She also maintains the informal Geek2Geek Web site which provides current information about the CIS program, course information (such as semester schedules and textbooks for CIS classes), a Geek2Geek newsletter, a CIS events calendar, internship and career postings, student highlights, and free  tips, tools, and tutorials.

In addition to three full-time faculty members, the Computer Information Systems program has an impressive complement of adjunct instructors who teach classes in the discipline. Many of the part-time faculty are employed full time in the area in which they instruct and bring to the class an unparalleled industry perspective.
