Report of the Naming & Symbols Task Force concerning four major areas:

  • Solicit input and perspectives from a broad range of constituencies and stakeholders that will guide us as we examine the origins of the names and symbols used on campus.
  • Audit the names used on buildings and other campus symbols to determine which may be connected to exclusion, segregation, racism or slavery.
  • Create a set of guiding principles and a range of options for how we should address any issues raised.
  • Provide to University leadership a set of recommendations.
