Dixie State University in Saint George, Utah, continues the conversation to remove “Dixie” from their name.

DSU’s Name Recommendation Committee and Board of Trustees proposed changing the institution’s name to Utah Tech University. Jordon Sharp, DSU’s Vice President of Marketing and Communication, says the name must now be approved by the Utah Board of Higher Education for DSU to move forward with the rebranding process.

“The Utah Board will vote sometime in between now, probably now, October, or early November and then it will go to the state after that,” Sharp said.
