Regent Policy Documents



(Formerly 86-2)

No facility or portion thereof which has been named after a person shall be removed/razed or have the name removed unless the Board has approved a plan to continue recognition of the person after whom the facility was named. Examples of such continued recognition are a plaque, an appropriately placed monument, a cornerstone of a new facility constructed on the site of the demolished building, etc.
