Cleveland State University To Change Name?

CLEVELAND (AP) - The head of Cleveland State University has suggested changing the school's name, possibly to the University of Cleveland.

President Michael Schwartz says the change would differentiate the four-year university from community colleges with similar names, such as Cincinnati State and Columbus State.

Schwartz, who will retire next year, has asked the university's marketing team to study how a new name would go over. He also asked the campus community on Tuesday to comment on the idea of fielding a football team, a move that would raise the university's profile.
