THE MORNING CALL | MAY 14, 2021 AT 10:58 AM

The Class of 2021 was the last to graduate from an institution known as Moravian College; in July, the school will officially become Moravian University.

The college announced Friday that the Pennsylvania Department of Education has approved Moravian’s request to become a university, sealing the deal on a process that began last fall.

The change becomes official July 1.

“This announcement sets a historical marker for us as we move into our 280th Academic Term and a new strategic plan,” President Bryon Grigsby wrote on the college’s Facebook page. “This announcement, among other things, will help our graduates to secure better jobs, help our institution organize around our current and future academic offerings, open up opportunities for future grant funding, and increase our international and domestic recruiting.”
