Colleges graduate into universities

The institutions point out that the change won't fundamentally alter what they are doing, but will recognize what has been going on for years.

"It's a change in moniker," said Skip Triplett, president and chief executive officer of Kwantlen University College. "It doesn't change our mandate at all."

Triplett said his institution is "delighted" it will be identified as Kwantlen Polytechnic University -- a name which he said reflects Kwantlen's balance between theory and practice.
