After meeting with nine different focus groups in three regions of Canada, the work of soliciting possible new names for CUC is finished. "We have listened very carefully to the more than 200 individuals who participated in our focus groups and reviewed the many e-mails received that contained suggested new names," said President Mark Haynal. "Cabinet has evaluated every suggested name and will recommend one of those names to the Board of Trustees for approval via a teleconference on or about December 16."
"We are also in the process of creating a Frequently Asked Questions document that we will make available when we announce our new name," explained Haynal. "Our name change will prompt many questions and we want to be as proactive as possible in answering them." If you have a question about how you or the institution will be impacted by the new name please e-mail it to Dr. Haynal at mhaynal(at)cauc.ca
Shown below, in no particular order, is a sampling of the names suggested at focus groups and by e-mail: Grace University, Cornerstone University of Canada, Barnett University, Northern Lights University, Luxton University, Cullmore University, Clemenson University, Burman University, Canadian Adventist University, Northern University, Capstone University, University of Central Alberta, Lakeview University, Miller University, Ellen White University, Aurora University, Canadian University Campus, True North University, Maple University, Christian University of Canada, University of Northern Canada, Canadian Aurora University, Lacombe University, Canadian University of the Rock, Aurora Borealis University, Lake Barnett University.
No matter what CUC's new name is, the campus will continue to be a place of incredible beauty. Because CUC's new drone can be programmed to fly the same route repeatedly, you can now enjoy the first two of the "Four Seasons" series of campus photos being taken from the same spot each season. Shown below are Summer and Autumn.
