Denver's Metropolitan State College considering name change
February 3, 2011
Metropolitan State College is considering a name change that could incorporate the word "university."
In addition to it's current name, Metro is considering three new names: Metropolitan State University of Denver, University of Central Colorado and Denver State University.
An assessment commissed by Metro last year found that the current name does not reflect Metro State's quality, size and complex offerings—including its recent addition of master's degrees, Metro said in a news release. The report also indicated that there is confusion as to whether Metro State is a community college or a four-year institution.
