BRISTOL, Tenn. — King College is formally changing its name to King University, effective June 1.
But within the university, King College will remain as the King College of Arts and Sciences, an homage to the Presbyterian Church-affiliated school’s liberal arts roots.
“Changes are coming,” King President Greg Jordan said in an announcement to students and others Wednesday afternoon, referring among other things to the growth in the online programs. “King College is on the forefront of change. King College is a leader in that change.”
