Jamestown College Changes Name

Posted: Updated:

A major change is coming to Jamestown State College.

The school changed its name to University of Jamestown to better reflect the breadth of its educational offerings and to recognize significant growth and change in its 130-year history. The private institution offers bachelor's, master's and doctoral degree programs.

"Internationally, the term ‘college' is often associated with secondary level education," Dr. Badal says. "By adopting the university name, we are opening doors that will support our enrollment goals."

The change to University of Jamestown also reflects continued outreach with partners in Africa, China,  South Korea and Vietnam, as well as the goal of increasing international student enrollment by five percent.

The Board of Trustees voted on the name change this spring after gathering input from stakeholders.
