DEARBORN (AP) – Henry Ford Community College is taking the word “community” out of its name.

The Dearborn school says that effective Saturday it will be called Henry Ford College. The school’s Board of Trustees last month approved the change.

The school says the change will better reflect its reach within and beyond its community. It says, however, that the Dearborn community remains important to its mission. A celebration is planned Saturday at the school to mark the new name’s debut.

The change reflects a trend among two-year schools. Jackson College dropped “community” from its name last year.

Henry Ford was originally known as Fordson Junior College and then Dearborn Junior College.
