This paper examines the impact of a cross-institutional faculty research mentorship program in Information Assurance (IA) on teaching and research at participating institutions. In this NSF funded project, security researchers invite community college and junior faculty to work jointly on research problems in IA and security. The program aims to enhance teaching in security at institutions in the Maryland Alliance for Information Security and Assurance (MAISA) through research. Its underlying philosophy is that research should inform teaching and teaching should, in turn, inform research.
