Nazareth College will soon become Nazareth University.
Nazareth officials made the announcement Nov. 17 after its board of trustees voted to approve the change. It is now up to the New York State Board of Regents to approve Nazareth’s university status. If approved, the name Nazareth University will officially take effect June 1.
“What a moment in Nazareth’s history!” Nazareth President Beth Paul said in a press release. “Nazareth is a thriving and diverse learning community that has offered significant undergraduate education since the 1920s and advanced graduate education since the mid-1950s.”
Nazareth, located in Pittsford, was founded by five members of the Sisters of St. Joseph in 1924. The school is an independent institution in the Catholic tradition.Tags: Monroe County East
