With the retirement of founding director Dr. Archie Rainey, Columbus State University is pleased to announce Dr. Dorinda Dowis as the interim director of CSU's Georgia Law Enforcement Command College.

Dr. Dowis has been a CSU faculty member since 1994. She spent nine years as chair of the Department of Criminal Justice and is a former CSU Educator of the Year.  She has been a Command College instructor for several years, and spent the last two years at the center as a faculty supervisor and liaison for the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges.

She previously worked five years in pretrial investigation and supervised children as a juvenile probation intake officer for the Juvenile Court of Columbus.

Dowis has a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice and master’s in justice administration from CSU and a doctorate in public administration from the University of Alabama.

“While no one could ever replace Archie Rainey, the Command College is in very capable hands with Dorinda Dowis,” said CSU Provost Dr. Tom Hackett.
