“No, the VU in Wellington, yes it’s in New Zealand”

The management of Victoria University of Wellington wants to change its name to the University of Wellington, in part to stop people confusing it with other institutions, such as Victoria University (of Melbourne). There was outrage when the change was proposed a couple of months and the university responded with a round of community consultation. Council will decide Monday. VC Grant Guilford was out and about yesterday talking up the change, telling Radio NZ, “When people talk about us as Victoria University, the connection to Wellington is lost.”
