Kinki University Renamed Kindai University to Silence Jokers (Japan)

Effective April 2016, Kindai University is the official English name of the institution formerly known as Kinki University. The Japanese name remains Kinki Daigaku (近畿大学), after the region of Japan in which it is located. 

The decision to change the English name was made two years ago, in response to student feedback about the university's name sparking jokes from English speakers.
