Renaming Advisory Committee

The Renaming Advisory Committee, established in March 2018, is charged with evaluating proposals to remove a name from a building, academic unit or academic program, utilizing the principles and criteria developed and adopted by Yale University on November 28, 2016, and unanimously endorsed by a University of Vermont work group chaired by Professor John Hughes appointed for the purpose of evaluating such principles and criteria. 

The Advisory Committee developed a process and form for submitting renaming requests.

The Advisory Committee will evaluate appropriately-submitted renaming proposals and provide advice to the Board of Trustees regarding any such proposals. 

Vice President for University Relations & Administration Thomas Gustafson will serve as Administrative Liaison to the Advisory Committee.
