The University of the District of Columbia is featured in two local newspapers this week.

The first article, from the August, 2009, edition of the Hill Rag discusses the School of Law's new part-time program.

The University of the District of Columbia reopens later this month amid the most far-reaching changes in its 32-year history. When classes resume Aug. 26, the District's only public college will operate as two entities, both effectively new to the District: a two-year community college, open to all, and a four-year "flagship" university with selective admissions and tuition comparable to state universities in Virginia and Maryland. The schools will have separate faculties and student bodies. [Read the rest on The Washington Post website]
