Help make our collective voices heard by contacting your representatives and encouraging the New York State Board of Regents to consider our application for university status.
On November 2, 2018, D’Youville College applied for university status, to reflect our institution’s strength in offering a variety of higher-level curricular programs. Currently, D’Youville College meets all the New York State Board of Regents’ criteria specifying the requirements for being recognized as a university, as opposed to a college. However, our application for university status has remained pending, and to the best of our knowledge has not been forwarded to the New York State Board of Regents for review and approval.
We are asking for your assistance in making sure that our application is forwarded to our New York State Board of Regents, so that our institution may be distinguished with the appropriate recognition for which it deserves.
Please download, sign, and mail in the attached letter to the addresses below by the end of the week.
