SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Westminster College is considering changing its name to Westminster University to garner more recognition and reflect a greater emphasis on its graduate programs.

However, a 14-page report issued by a committee formed to explore a name change for the school also outlines reasons the school's name should remain unchanged.

It's an issue that Westminster President Michael Bassis says he's still undecided on.

Bassis said he would likely make his recommendation to the school's trustees in the fall.
