Stan Mierzwa

University Technology Leader of the Year

Stan Mierzwa is an assistant director and lecturer for Kean University’s Center for Cybersecurity. Kean University was designated in 2022 as a National Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense by the National Security Agency for its academic programs, outreach, and collaborations to address a growing national crisis of a shortage of trained cybersecurity professionals in the workforce. Kean’s NSA CAE-CD designation initiative was led by Mierzwa. This validation will help the university further its efforts to develop and expand its cybersecurity programs, aiming to provide greater opportunities for our students and graduates in this growing field. Mierzwa continues to involve students in programs such as a summer cybersecurity micro certification study group, adding more value to their toolboxes.
