Md.'s Notre Dame to become a university
The College of Notre Dame of Maryland will be changing its designation to "university," which school officials say will bring the name in line with the institution's broadening scope, The Baltimore Sun reports.
"In terms of our brand identity, we needed to do a clarification of what we are," said P.J. Mitchell, chair of the board of trustees. "This will allow us to more clearly articulate the breadth and depth of what we offer."
The board voted in May to move forward with the change and will work on a timeline and the exact wording of the new name at its next meeting in October.
Notre Dame has been a small women's college for most of its history and remains so at the undergraduate level. But it now comprises three schools, including the schools of education and pharmacy which offer doctoral-level degrees. This year Notre Dame handed out as many graduate degrees, about 400, as undergraduate degrees.
