The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey Seeks Reclassification and a Change in Name

The Board of Trustees for The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey voted this month to seek reclassification of the institution as a comprehensive university.  The announcement of the action on the institution's web site provides an extensive review of the process leading up to the decision.  A link to additional web pages provides access to a FAQ and more details that will be of interest to anyone considering a similar change in mission and name.


Richard Stockton State College was established in 1969 with classes starting in 1971.  The name was changed in 1993 to The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey.
