“With my CIPS membership and I.S.P. designation, I continually demonstrate my commitment to professionalism to my students.  This is further reinforced as students graduate from an accredited program, because they know they are graduating from a quality program as they undertake their careers as IT professionals”

Mary Lynn Manton, I.S.P.
Professor, Seneca College
