Trustees to name satellite campus

By Jake Hibbard

Already up and running, the U Graduate Center in St. George now just needs approval for what it’s already doing.

The U Board of Trustees will discuss the proposal today to approve the name of the graduate school satellite campus, which is adjacent to Dixie State College’s campus.

The center opened its doors in the fall of 2007 and allows students in St. George to attend classes already being taught at the U via video conference, as well as take classes from instructors at the satellite campus itself.

New programs at the U with “institute” or “center” in their name are accepted on a two-year interim period, said David Pershing, the vice president of academic affairs. After the interim period is up, the name must be reaccepted on a permanent basis.

The center, which is not affiliated with DSC, is paid for through the $1 million funding budget the Utah State Legislature granted to the U in 2006 to aid the proposed merger between DSC and the U.
