  • The campus community is saddened by the death of former University President Dr. John E. Deloney, who came to Livingston in 1963. Deloney's administration is credited with significant growth in student enrollment, which led to the school's reorganization and establishment of four separate colleges. With this, the school's name was changed from State Teachers College to Livingston University to reflect the expanded curriculum.
