  2. UCLA Policy 112, Naming of University Facilities and Organizational Units for Individuals.


The University receives many requests from many sources to name University buildings, portions of buildings, streets, gardens, courts, research units, schools, colleges, clinics, foundations and collections in honor of individuals. The President of the University has full authority to name University properties, programs, and facilities. The President has delegated partial authority to the Chancellor to name minor University facilities, as set forth in UCLA Policy 112, and single campus programs within his jurisdiction after consideration of each proposal on its own merits. Some proposals are suggested in recognition of very significant gifts. Others are suggested in honor of individuals with no gift involved based on the criteria listed in UCLA Policy 112.


All proposals for the naming of a UCLA facility or organizational unit shall be submitted to the Chancellor's Executive Committee for their recommendation. 


Requestor Sends proposal to the Chancellor.
Chancellor If proposal is appropriate under existing policy, submits request to Chancellor’s Executive Committee for comments.
