Feedback requested: Proposal to remove building name for Barrows Hall

July 13, 2020

The Building Name Review Committee is considering a proposal from our campus community to un-name Barrows Hall. The proposal is posted on the Building Name Review Committee’s website.

This committee process helps determine if the current name of a building should be changed. Identifying a permanent new name for any building approved for un-naming is a separate process that requires additional consultation with our campus community at a later stage.

At this time, the Building Name Review Committee solicits and welcomes feedback on a proposal regarding Barrows Hall. The initial comment period will remain open for 2-5 weeks depending on the volume of responses. Responders may indicate that their comments remain private; if not so indicated, the committee will curate and post comments on its website.
