A Week After Announced Closure, Dowling May Live

June 9, 2016

Dowling College said on Wednesday that it is exploring a partnership with an international network of institutions that may allow it to stay in business, one week after announcing that it would shut its doors because of financial problems. An announcement on the Dowling website said that its Board of Trustees is engaged in "sustained strategic negotiations" with Global University Systems, which operates institutions, mostly professional schools, in Asia, Europe and North America.

A local television station on Long Island quoted the head of the college's alumni association as saying Dowling had received an infusion of cash from Global University Systems to keep the institution alive.
