Booth officially a university college

September 17, 2010

Last Friday marked the official renaming of William and Catherine Booth College, a Winnipeg-based theological institution and seminary affiliated with the Salvation Army, as Booth University College. The school's president says the new designation "expresses more effectively to our audience the type of education we provide and clarifies that the mission of Booth is to offer university-level programs." Booth's new tagline is "Education for a Better World," signifying that the institution "is preparing its students to think beyond themselves to imagine a world in which hope, justice and mercy become more common." The institution has also launched a redesigned website in conjunction with the new name. Booth News Release | Booth website
