Marymount Announces Name Change
Marymount is changing its name from Marymount College, Palos Verdes, California to Marymount California University (MCU). This new name reflects the recent transformation of our 45-year-old institution of higher education to a future multisite institution with undergraduate and graduate programs. “The consideration of a name change came as a natural part of a college-wide inquiry in 2012 that included reviews of academic programs, mission, governance and marketing,” shared MCU President Michael Brophy.
