Bainbridge College (BC) is no more. During the 13 February meeting of the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia a request was approved to officially change the name of Bainbridge College to Bainbridge State College (BSC). This name change came on the heels of an approval from the Regents to grant BC the new status of a four-year college, thus the name change to reflect BC’s new “state college” status. The four-year status enables the institution to award a limited number of baccalaureate degrees focused on the economic development needs of the region of Georgia served by BSC. The College’s mission statement was also changed to reflect its new status as a four year institution.
BSC President, Richard Carvajal said “We will now make application with the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools for a ‘Level Change,’ meaning that we will be asking for their authority to officially grant baccalaureate degrees.” In addition, BSC is making plans to enroll its first class into a bachelor’s degree management program no later than 2014. This program will provide students with a core curriculum in business management, and students will be able to augment that core curriculum by choosing from various areas of emphasis that match some of the area’s most pressing workforce needs.
