Universities around the world honor individuals or entities who have made important contributions that enable teaching, research, public service, and scholarship, and promote the mission and values of the University. Gallaudet is no different. As the need for private contributions to the University continues to increase, opportunities arise for Gallaudet to facilitate philanthropic gifts by naming programs and campus facilities to honor the generosity of these donors. All naming must be consistent with the University’s goals and mission. Accordingly, all such proposals shall be reviewed and approved in accordance with related University policies and guidelines.
For the purpose of this policy, naming opportunities refer to campus buildings, memorials, and academic and non-academic programs. Recognition opportunities are not limited to naming facilities for the honoree, but include other means, such as naming a program, in which individuals or entities are recognized for their contributions-academic, financial, or other- that bring distinction to the University and its mission.
*In general, recognizing an individual or group is based on three factors.
