New York Regents grant university status to Dominican College in Orangeburg, N.Y.

May 19, 2022
The institution's new name is Dominican University New York.

Dominican College in Orangeburg, N.Y., has been granted university status by the New York State Board of Regents and is now called Dominican University New York

It is the first university in Rockland County, the university says in a news release. 

Dominican was granted university status because it offers graduate programs in at least three of the following discipline areas: agriculture, biological sciences, business, education, engineering, fine arts, health professions, humanities, physical sciences, and social sciences.

Founded in 1952 by the Dominican Sisters of Blauvelt, the college began as a two-year college for religious women to become educators. Over the years, the campus has expanded to accommodate a growing enrollment and to welcome resident students.
