Clarke College is Now Clarke University

May 11, 2012

It is official and historic. Clarke College is now Clarke University.

In May, the institution’s Board of Trustees voted unanimously to change the name and the change took effect when the clock struck midnight on August 1.

“Becoming Clarke University marks the start of a new era for this great institution,” said President Joanne M. Burrows, SC, Ph.D. “It is a name that proudly communicates the broad spectrum of learners we serve while also speaking to the Clarke of the future – one that will meet the changing needs of students while maintaining the very hallmarks of Clarke.”

Clarke faculty and staff will celebrate the school’s first business day as a university with an informal cake reception on at 10:30 a.m. on Monday, August 2, on the front plaza of the Wahlert Atrium. At this time, a new Clarke University banner will be unveiled in the Atrium’s entryway.

A full, all-campus celebration is being planned for the first day of classes on Monday, August 30, when students have returned to campus. Details regarding this celebration will follow.
