Houston Baptist University has changed its name to Houston Christian University.
Mark Berman of FOX 26 reported the news earlier Wednesday before President Robert B. Sloan officially revealed the change at an open forum.
Per Berman, Sloan called it "a more accurate description" and "a huge step for the University."
"Houston Christian University more accurately epitomizes our student body and reflects the faculty, staff, alumni, and community we serve," Sloan said at Wednesday's forum, per FOX 26. "We are committed to being a distinctively Christian university that welcomes all Christians to benefit from our excellent academic programs. This historic university appeals to people all across the spectrum of Christian denominational life, and this new name clarifies who we are."
