Dakota State University students walking around campus

Preparation + opportunity = success

That's the DSU equation. We're a four-year university with nationally recognized programs, cutting-edge facilities, and the brightest thinkers. But we're also a tight-knit, inclusive community. Small class sizes mean hands-on training and individualized attention. All this with an affordable, public school price that's among the best values in the region.

Griffiths to take part in White House Summit

July 19, 2022

President José-Marie Griffiths will be participating in the White House Cyber Workforce and Education Summit on July 19.

The event will include roundtable discussions on three topics related to cyber-security jobs: cyber education; defense; and cyber workforce hiring. There is a workforce gap of about 700,000 vacancies in cyber-security, and collaborative efforts are needed to fill these critical positions for stakeholders in the government, private sector, and others.

In addition to these discussion topics, Griffiths plans to highlight Dakota State’s recently announced $90 million cyber-research initiative, which includes the expansion of The Beacom College of Computer and Cyber Sciences, and the statewide Governor’s Cyber Academy.

“Dakota State has unique and innovative resources that can help alleviate some of the challenges we face in the cyber-security field. Our academic efforts will increase the workforce pipeline in all sectors, and our research efforts will provide distinctive new ways to securely enhance our digital way of life,” said President Griffiths.

She also recently served on the National Security Commission on Artificial Intelligence, as chair of the Workforce Subcommittee.
