Name Change Approved for Technical College

bgtc tech 300BOWLING GREEN, KY (12/11/12) – The Kentucky Community and Technical College System (KCTCS) Board of Regents approved Bowling Green Technical College for a new name. The College will soon become Southcentral Kentucky Community and Technical College.
 
On August 3, 2010, Bowling Green Technical College received approval by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges to award the associate in arts and associate in science degrees, making the College a comprehensive community and technical college. This allows students transfer opportunities as well as technical degrees, diplomas and certificates for high wage/high demand careers.
 
The College has been engaged in a process to select a name that would reflect the expanded mission of the College as a Comprehensive Community and Technical College. The College also sought to establish a regional name that would align with the expanded reach of its campuses in communities throughout South Central Kentucky.
 
A college and community-based process was initiated to solicit input and to identify possibilities for an appropriate name that would reflect the expanded mission of Bowling Green Technical College. A Name Change Committee was appointed and charged with guiding the process and ensuring that input was received from students, faculty, staff, retirees, alumni, donors, businesses, and community leaders. The College Board of Directors and the Foundation Board of Directors were also completely engaged in the process.
 
“Southcentral Kentucky Community and Technical College was selected as the most appropriate for the College's mission, and represents the pride of our citizens throughout the South Central region of Kentucky as an increasingly vital part of our great Commonwealth,” states Bowling Green Technical College President, Dr. Nathan Hodges. “This new name will reflect the expanded mission of the College as a comprehensive community and technical college and respects the tradition and history of Bowling Green Technical College throughout this region of our State.”
