NCCU's Process on the Renaming of Buildings

Posted February 07, 2022, 6:58PM

North Carolina Central University (NCCU) Student Government Association (SGA) has approached the university’s administration with the request to consider renaming the McLean Residence Hall, named after former North Carolina Governor Angus Wilton McLean.

A meeting has been held with Chancellor Johnson O. Akinleye and Dr. Angela A. Coleman, vice chancellor for Student Affairs, and information has been collected by NCCU Archives and the Department of History. 

A formal process has begun that includes a series of key steps before the recommendation can be considered by the NCCU Board of Trustees. Similar to the renaming of the James E. Shepard Administration Building in 2019, the procedure includes the engagement of stakeholders, forums, surveys and additional research, among other protocols.

NCCU remains committed to continually reviewing and evaluating opportunities for change that reflect progress and growth, while also representing the growing diversity of the university and larger communities.
