Q: Are there other advantages of changing the college name to reflect its university status?
A: Several additional advantages can be identified:
1. The name change helps to open the door for increasing the number of WWC's graduate programs, an area identified as presenting the most potential for growth.
2. Several faculty are becoming more interested in applying for research grants. With a name that reflects university status, the chances of being awarded such grants are likely to increase.
3. Graduate students have voiced the belief that prospective employers would be more attracted to "university" in the name of their degree-granting institution.
