Metro State’s quest to have its name changed to Metropolitan State University of Denver has just one more step to go: the signing of the bill into law by Gov. John Hickenlooper.
Today the Colorado House of Representatives on third reading voted 56-6 (with three absentees) to pass SB-148, the bill authorizing the change.
“I am so proud of Metro State—our students, alumni, faculty and staff,” says President Stephen Jordan. “You deserve this recognition. As I have said all along, our commitment to our mission will not change, but having the stature of a university will level the playing field for our students in their job search.”
Board of Trustees Chair Rob Cohen adds that he is “certain that the new name will allow us to continue to provide a quality education to our students and will have a positive impact on our economy and the community at large.
“We have and will continue to do everything in our power to see that Metro State achieves the recognition we have so rightly earned and deserve,” Cohen says.
