Board of Trustees Policy  720.1

NAMING BUILDINGS

The original PDF version of this policy is linked from the revised date below.

When a University building is to be named in honor of some individual, it shall be named in memory of a person who, during his or her lifetime, gave significant service to the University, except that (1) the Board endorses in principle the naming of a building for an individual who, from his or her personal resources, has made a substantial contribution, in relation to total costs, toward construction of said building, and (2) the Board will consider without prejudice, when circumstances warrant, the naming of a building for an emeritus faculty or staff member who has spent a large part of his or her professional career in the service of the University and who, during a certain period of service, made noteworthy contributions to the progress and welfare of the University.
