About the Naming Principles Commission

The Naming Principles Commission, comprising faculty, staff, student, alumni, Trustee, and external expert representation, and advised by additional distinguished scholars and practitioners, was appointed by the University’s Board of Trustees in summer 2021 and began work in August 2021. The Commission was established to develop and recommend principles to guide future decisions about namings and removal of/modification to names, across applications of names (e.g., buildings, professorships, programs, etc.).
