(a) The legislature hereby declares that the purpose of this section is to recognize
that junior colleges are in fact comprehensive community colleges which serve their
communities not only through university-parallel programs but also by means of occupational
programs and other programs of community interest and need.
(b) The board of trustees of any junior college district may by resolution duly adopted
change the name of such district by substituting the word “community” for the word
“junior” in such name. A copy of such resolution duly certified by the secretary of the board of trustees
shall be filed with the Coordinating Board, Texas College and University System. Such change in name shall become effective upon the filing of such resolution with
the said coordinating board. Thereafter all references to such district in all official actions, communications
and records shall be by use of such new name.
