Southern Christian renamed Regions University


MOTGOMERY, ALA. —
Regents “determined that this name would enhance the university’s opportunities and would complement the purpose and vision of the university as it accelerates its educational and religious heritage of ‘Going into all the regions of the world,’” Turner said.
The name “Southern” had been restrictive because of geographical and political restraints, causing the university’s influence to be minimized in the western and northern United States, he said.
“In foreign countries, ‘Southern’ poses unique naming problems,” he added. “On many occasions, our faculty experienced the limiting access of the name as they taught in the regions of the former Communist Russia.” For more information, see www.regions.edu.
