Wayne State University Statutes

2.85.07 Naming Facilities and Intangibles, Guidelines and List of Names
   
2.85.07.010 Designation by Function
  Functional designation of a facility ordinarily will be considered appropriate unless there is a need to name the facility because of confusion or difficulty in identification.
   
2.85.07.020 Designation by Name
  When a facility is named, the name shall memorialize or honor a person whose outstanding leadership, achievement or other contribution has constituted a significant benefit to the life of the nation, State or University. Consideration shall be given to the following:

    a)    The name should be appropriate to current or prospective use of the facility.

    b)    The name should have enduring relevance.

    c)    Only in exceptional circumstances will a facility be named for a current public official or current member of the University community.
   
2.85.07.030 General
  When use of a facility is changed, its name shall be considered for transfer to the new facility to which the use is moved.
   
2.85.07.040 When a named facility is abandoned by the University, consideration shall be given to perpetuation of the name in some other manner.
   
2.85.07.050 Portions of buildings such as classrooms, laboratories and lounge areas may also be named regardless of the structural designation.
   
2.85.07.060 Where the nominations are related to a donation of private funds for the support of a University program, the gift should approximate the significant portion of the cost of a facility. It is recognized that some flexibility must be granted in this area because among several criteria the age, stature, use, and derivation of the building will influence the expected financial commitment.
   
2.85.07.070 Members of Wayne State University whose names are placed in nomination should meet the general qualifications described in these guidelines.
   
2.85.07.080 Nominations for naming of facilities should be submitted in writing to the President of the University.
   
2.85.07.090 Exceptions to these guidelines may be made on recommendations of the President subject to the approval of the Board of Governors.
