Lac Courte Oreilles Ojibwe College announced a name change November of 2019, the change was to demonstrate to internal and external stakeholders that the College is transforming and positioning to offer bachelor’s degrees. The process of the name change included community conversations, community surveys, and the announcement of pilot bachelor’s degree courses.
Through additional conversations with stakeholders like students, faculty, staff, and community members the College has refreshed their logo, updating the colors and incorporating teachings about the earth, water, and the path of life.
Additionally, with the recent approval to join the NJCAA and commitment to offer athletic programs beginning with golf in the spring of 2021 the College has identified a team name of Migizi Dayesaashijig (Soaring Eagles) and adopted a mascot by the name of Desaash (s/he soars in the air/wind without flapping wings).
A celebration of the logo and mascot is planned for April.
