The U.S. government should convert Dowling College into a cybersecurity center where high school graduates with grade-point averages 90 and above could attend for free if they agree to work for the federal government for five years after graduation [“Dowling shutting down,” News, June. 1].
With people in China, North Korea, Russia, Ukraine and other countries hacking into our sensitive and critical computers, this new mission for Dowling would serve the country well. A Dowling center for cybersecurity and computer forensics would keep the once-proud college’s name alive while educating the next generation of cyberdefenders.
