The report was based on criteria that included whether the colleges prepared teachers to manage a classroom and teach reading and gave their undergraduate or graduate students high-quality, hands-on experience before they graduated.

Loyola College in Maryland announced yesterday that it will become Loyola University Maryland to better reflect the breadth of its programs, but some alumni fear the new name does not reflect the intimate nature of the education that drew them to the college. The school has been known as Loyola College since it was founded by Jesuits in 1852, but now, with dozens of graduate programs and 2,400 graduate students, the board of trustees has decided it is time for a new name. "The college logo does not communicate the richness and distinctiveness of the institution," said Loyola's president, the Rev. Brian F. Linnane.

Morgan State University may have won a Pyrrhic victory in its dispute with the University of Maryland University College over a graduate program to train doctoral candidates in community college administration.
