College of Arts and Sciences proposes to change its name to the College of Arts, Sciences, and Engineering
University
College of Arts, Sciences, and Engineering
Requires SACS Review

As a result of a request from the College of Business to become the College of Business and Technology, the College of Arts and Sciences believed that some confusion could result relating to our Department of Engineering and Technology. Having introduced this idea during our college faculty and staff virtual meetings on Friday, April 15 and Monday, April 18 and at our most recent Department Chairs’ meeting, we hereby propose that the College of Arts and Sciences be renamed the College of Arts, Sciences, and Engineering. Faculty, staff, and students were asked to indicate if they were in favor of the proposed name change - the majority (54% of faculty/staff; 78% of students) viewed the name change positively.
