Marshall President Jerome Gilbert said the institute is an academic and research cluster that will support cybersecurity-related programs across the campus.

“We can do research and teaching to expand our presence in the cyber arena,” Gilbert said.

The new center will work to address emerging needs in cybersecurity, the Charleston Gazette-Mail reported.

David Dampier, dean of the College of Engineering and Computer Sciences, said it is designed to tap into a new mix of students and early-career professionals, and connect those learners with top cybersecurity talent in the region.

The institute is housed in the university’s Applied Engineering Complex.
