A new era: Metropolitan State University of Denver
Metro State's name change is official.
On April 18, Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper signed SB12-148 into law authorizing Metro State to change its name to Metropolitan State University of Denver. At 3p.m., students, staff and faculty gathered in the main lobby of the Student Success Building to witness this celebration that signals a new chapter in Metro State's history. The name will officially take effect on July 1.
This marks the end of a long road of assessments and the beginning of new opportunities. Thank you to all our scrappy students, alumni, faculty and staff and community supporters for helping make our new name a reality.
