La Roche College is now La Roche University.
Divine Providence Sister Candace Introcaso, La Roche’s president, recently announced that the Pennsylvania Department of Education authorized the change.
“Becoming a university is the fulfillment of a vision that many on campus have shared for several years, and is recognition of how far La Roche has come,” she said on the university’s website. “What began as a school for religious women in 1963 with seven students in its first graduating class is now a university that offers 66 undergraduate programs of study, six master’s degrees and one doctoral degree.
“The future is very bright for La Roche,” Sister Candace said.
