Baltimore, Maryland - The College of Notre Dame of Maryland will soon drop "college" from its name and replace it with "university."
The women's Roman Catholic college announced Tuesday that beginning this fall, it will be known as Notre Dame of Maryland University.
President Mary Pat Seurkamp says in a letter to the campus community that the name change reflects the college's variety of schools and academic programs and its emergence as a multifaceted institution.
The change takes effect Sept. 9, 2011, the 116th anniversary of the college's first day of classes in 1895.
Notre Dame was founded by the School Sisters of Notre Dame and was the nation's first Catholic college for women to offer a four-year degree.
