Dixie State University (UT)

Benjamin Wood's article for the Deseret News on February 13, 2013 indicates that Utah lawmakers approved a move to university status.  The bill also includes a change in name to Dixie State University from Dixie State College.  The institution founded in 1911 began with LDS Church sponsorship. Control then shifted to the Utah Board of Education from 1935-1969 and then to the Utah State Board of Regents after 1969.
