Naming Opportunities

​​​​​​​​​​By lending your name, the name of another individual, group, or business, you become a part of the strong tradition that is Central Michigan University. Named programs offer significant support for endowed student scholarships, faculty research, creative endeavors, or even the construction or furnishing of a university building. Named programs at Central Michigan University give special honor to the person or group for whom the program is named, as well as to CMU. Consider naming a Faculty Program or establish a Student Fund that will exist all time. Naming Buildings or even rooms within buildings on campus is a very visible and lasting way to leave a legacy of support.
