What’s In a Name? Plenty If You’re A College

WesternState-150x150 bb.jpg

Colorado’s four-year public colleges will soon be a rarity. That’s because most colleges don’t want to be colleges any more, and are asking the legislature to change their names. 

KUNC’s State Capitol reporter Bente Birkeland takes a closer look at the reasons behind the requests.

Bente Birkeland has been reporting on state legislative issues for KUNC and Rocky Mountain Community Radio since 2006. Originally, from Minnesota, Bente likes to hike and ski in her spare time. She keeps track of state politics throughout the year but is especially busy during the annual legislative session from January through early May.
