In a sign of the times, West Virginia University's journalism school is changing its name.

The Perley Isaac Reed School of Journalism will be known starting July 1 as Reed College of Media. The name change was presented Friday to the WVU Board of Governors meeting in Morgantown.

The name change is intended to reflect the changing media landscape, which includes public relations as well as journalism. Dean Maryanne Reed says graduates must be able to engage with audiences across traditional and emerging media platforms.

The school was founded in 1979 by Perley Isaac Reed, a professor.
