On Feb. 8, President Michael B. Alexander announced that Lasell is transitioning from a college to a university. This comes after the college expanded its graduate program. This president expanded on this message at the town hall meeting on Feb. 20 in de Witt Hall.
The change to a university continues the institution’s trend to reinvent itself, similar to how it changed from a junior college in 1989.
