Starting Jan. 17, Oakton Community College begins a new chapter in its proud history as it officially becomes Oakton College. Along with the name change, the college will unveil a new visual identity, including a modernization of the college's iconic leaf logo and new college seal. The prospect of transitioning to Oakton College was first discussed by Oakton's board of trustees in 2019, as the college celebrated its 50th anniversary. The board approved the transition in August 2021. A combination of institutional and societal factors, including the launch of a new strategic plan, created an ideal opportunity for Oakton to reintroduce itself to the communities it serves.
