RADNOR, Pa. (April 27, 2016) — Today, President Donald B. Taylor, PhD, announced that Cabrini College will officially become Cabrini University effective July 1, 2016.
The Pennsylvania Department of Education granted Cabrini approval to become a university after its application was submitted earlier this year.
Cabrini will launch a new logo and brand identity on July 1 and begin to transition the campus to Cabrini University. When students return to campus for the new school year in August 2016, the community will celebrate this momentous change with a town hall meeting with the President and university-wide events with students, faculty, staff, alumni, and friends.
The National Science Foundation awarded Cabrini a grant of nearly $650,000 to support the Science Scholars for Social Justice (SSSJ) Program, intended to engage students at the intersection of science and service.
