Naming University Buildings

Title

Naming University Buildings

Description

Conflicting opinions about the naming scheme of UMBC�s buildings, and Academic IV in particular, motivated the formation of a committee to propose a formal process by which names could be approved. The report of the committee was sent to the UMBC Faculty Senate in March 1983. The committee recommended that the existing convention of using geographical names for dormitories should be continued, however, As names of Maryland bodies of water are all but exhausted, the committee proposes that the six academic buildings be named for the counties in closest proximity to Baltimore City, and that future buildings be named for other counties.� This suggestion was never implemented.
