Gannon University Institute for Health and Cyber Knowledge (I-HACK)

Gannon University announces the launch of the Institute for Health and Cyber Knowledge (I-HACK).

Army Educator's Expo

This event will allow Educators & Community Partners a firsthand experience with the Army's excellent education and training opportunities. 

The U.S. Army Recruiting Company in Erie, PA is hosting this event which will act as a bridge for supportive and non-supportive College/High School Educators within the Erie/Meadville area and local Army ROTC representatives. 

The Expo is a joint effort for recruitment for U.S. Army, Army ROTC, Gannon University & other Universities in the Erie/Meadville region.

This is an important event for community recruitment for High School students looking at college level scholarship opportunities that would involve military service in the Reserve component or as Officers on active duty through Army ROTC.  Local ROTC programs are currently paying out over $1.7 million in scholarships annually and U.S. Army ROTC is the single largest provider of scholarships in the Nation!

"Youth deserve ability to make an informed decision about their future", by Jeffrey Snow.

"Our nation is filled with underemployed workers who paid for degrees but can't get jobs because they don't have the necessary experience. I wish they had known they could choose from 150 different careers, gain technical experience and certifications, and get a degree in the U.S. Army".
