DMGS: Closing Its Doors

The Daniel Morgan Graduate School of National Security (DMGS), which was founded to educate and prepare future leaders to develop actionable solutions to global and domestic national security challenges, closed its doors on July 31, 2020, pursuant to a comprehensive Teach-Out Plan submitted to the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE).  The Teach-Out Plan was designed to support students eligible to complete their academic programs and graduate from DMGS, as well as to support students that will be completing their academic programs at other institutions.
