ST. PETERSBURG, Fla.--Eckerd College will offer a new major, environmental 
law ethics, thanks to a $122,000 grant from the National Endowment for the 
Humanities (NEH). The grant will fund an 18-month project during which 
faculty will plan an interdisciplinary project focusing on environmental 
studies. The program is run by the NEH and the National Science Foundation, 
and will be designed for students studying environmental policy and 
environmental humanities. 
WAUKESHA, Wis.--Carroll College will award 1994 Olympic medal winner Bonnie 
Blair an honorary degree in September in recognition of her distinguished 
speed-skating career. The college will present the doctorate of humane 
letters during the college's opening convocation Sept. 6. It will be 
Blair's first honorary degree. 
MONTREAT, N.C.--Montreat-Anderson College officially changed its name to 
Montreat College on Aug. 22. An official "Year of the Mountains" event, the 
opening convocation ceremony featured well-known photographer Hugh Morton, 
owner of Grandfather Mountain, as keynote speaker. The name change was 
approved at the April board of trustees meeting after a yearlong study as 
part of the development of a new strategic plan for the college. According 
to William Hurt, college president, the "new" name change is not new to the 
campus, but reflective of the college's four-year status and return to its 
heritage as a baccalaureate degree-granting institution.
