President’s Advisory Panel on University Namings and Recognitions

Upcoming meeting:
Monday, October 30, 2017
11:00 am – 12:30 pm
Turnbull Conference Center Auditorium

Florida State University President John Thrasher announced the creation of a panel of university students, faculty, staff, administrators and alumni to examine and make recommendations on current university policies concerning campus names and markers, including statues and other recognitions.

The creation of the panel follows Thrasher’s condemnation of August’s violent acts by white supremacists in Charlottesville, Va., and his pledge to the FSU community to protect free speech while ensuring the safety and well-being of students, faculty and staff.

The panel is charged with researching the issues, meeting and engaging with university constituencies to seek input and feedback, determining criteria for appropriate naming policies and making any other recommendations deemed necessary.


The 15-member panel of university students, faculty, staff and alumni will examine and review current university policies concerning campus names and markers, including statues and other recognitions.
