Mount Mary College to change name in 2013


MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Mount Mary College in Milwaukee is changing its name to Mount Mary University.

   The college's Board of Trustees approved the name change and released the news to students and others Friday.

   The change will be effective in the fall of next year -- marking the school's 100th anniversary.

   Mount Mary President Dr. Eileen Schwalbach says the school recently started its first doctorate degree in art therapy and a task force and an outside research firm confirmed there was support for the name change.

   Mount Mary College was founded in 1913 and was Wisconsin's first four-year, degree-granting Catholic college for women.
