UMUC's real problem: It's confusing name [Letter]

Something key has been lost in the debate about the future direction of the University of Maryland University College — its confusing name ("UMUC should focus on education, not business," Sept, 18).

If it's really meant be a "college," perhaps in the same overkill spirit of its current name it should be called the "University of Maryland College College."

That way, no one would be confused about what it is.

If, on the other hand, it's really a "university," then the "University of the University of Maryland University" might be more apt.

Can we get a ruling on this key part of the institution's future from the Department of Redundancy Department?
