St. John Fisher: Board of Regents approves move from college to university

St. John Fisher is a university.

Effective July 1, 2022 the school will become St. John Fisher University.

The state Board of Regents approved the change from college to university at a meeting this week.

It’s a major change, but one that nearly a dozen former colleges is making.

Outside the U.S. a lot of people assume colleges are two-year, technical schools. This year 11 other colleges have morphed into universities.

Nazareth College is working on the same change, according to News10NBC.
