New College Undergraduate Inquiry and Research Experiences

Thank you for your support:

Terra Verde Services

Carolyn and Ed Vasko have established a fellowship in Terra Verde's name for the ASU West NCUIRE program that aligns students with professors to work on real-world application of their classroom learning.
 
“I knew that there would be an increasing shortage of trained cybersecurity professionals in the market place. And because of my involvement with ASU’s West campus, I saw the possibility of the NCUIRE program. So, my wife and I bridged the industry demand with the opportunities being provided by NCUIRE and decided to establish this fellowship program. We wanted to provide students the opportunity to learn alongside ASU West’s Applied Computing faculty on projects that are relevant to the cybersecurity market. Once these projects are completed, we try to provide on-going internships and career opportunities to these NCUIRE fellows.”

-Ed Vasko, CEO
