In the event that the University President asks for an investigation into an existing campus building name, the Provost will form an ad hoc Advisory Committee for Campus Building Names.
Ad hoc committee:
That ad hoc committee shall consist of the following persons from Auburn University, main campus: three faculty members (with one member from the Department of History); one representative from the Administrative and Professional Assembly; one member of the University Staff Council; one graduate student, one undergraduate student; the Associate Provost (or designee), the chair of the Master Plan Committee, the University Architect (who will serve as chair), the University Senate Chair (or designee), and one representative each from the Office of Development, Alumni Affairs, Auburn Public Safety, Office of Communications and Marketing, and Auxiliary Services.
The committee will review any existing campus building name issues brought to the committee by the President and make a recommendation to the Provost that addresses the President’s request. In conducting its work, the committee will use a process focused on inclusion that reflects sensitivity to racial, gender, and cultural diversity. Moreover, the Provost’s Office in conjunction with Campus Planning and Space Management (CPSM) and the Office of Communications and Marketing will oversee the creation of any required educational materials related to the request from the President. The committee is responsible for reviewing the educational materials to ensure that they accurately reflect the history and context of the building names.
Special note: for these guidelines, the campus includes the Research Park.
