"Our efforts to remove barriers to education for working adults through our Graduate and Professional Studies (GPS), launched in 2001, and more re- cently, the development of on- line programs helped pave the way to our broadening acad- emics and accelerated growth," Jordan notes. "Of course, none quality official in addition to growing its main campus in Bristol and offering online programs, King has established 12 satellite cam- puses across East Tennessee and Southwest Virginia. Bill Adams, chairman of the King. University Board of Trustees, notes that the name change is crucial in positioning King within the larger academic community.

The Capitol is angry. Coffee Time for all area senior that our school has reached in recent years. We believe the word 'university' more accur- ately reflects the current com- plexity of our academic pro- grams and ultimately enhances the value of a King degree for past, present and future grad- Hates." After about a year of dis- cussion and based on the school's unprecedented growth over the past decade, the name change was recommended by the administration and approved by its board of trustees. Significantly, King has more than doubled its student body juncture. It is an amazing evolution by which we should all be encouraged." Becoming a university is the natural unfolding of King's strategic plan, unveiled in 1998, to create an even broader mix of programs based on a university model. Using this approach, the institution now has six academic • schools of learning: ,. King College of Arts and Sciences • King School of Busi- ness and Economics • King School of Edu- cation • King School of Graduate and Professional Studies & Online Programs !GPS) King School of Nursing ' Peeke School of Christian Mission Notably, three of the GPS offerings are advanced degrees - a Master of Business Admini- stration (MBA), a Master of number of levels, particularly in terms of facilitating fundraising and foundation opportunities and the future acquisition of grant awards." Being named a "university" also more accurately aligns King with current assessments per- formed by entities interested in higher education. Due to its broadened curriculum, King has been reviewed using a university standard by U.S. News & World Report Best Colleges for the past • several years. Other benefits cited by Jordan include improved job and graduate school opportunities for graduates and enhanced abilit.y of King University to recrmt faculty and students from across the globe. The new designation also helps boost marketing and branding for the school, clar- ifying its higher education status for foreign audiences, for which the word "college" often refers to pre-university programs and boys basketball at Union at 7:30 pro; JV girls basketball at Union at 6:00 pm.
