Capital Support

French Auditorium and the Education and Human Services Building

Unnamed Existing Building

Currently, unnamed buildings may be named by the establishment of an endowment equivalent to 12.5% of the fair market value of the building.

Portions of Buildings

Individual rooms or wings in new or existing buildings such as auditoriums, lecture halls, and lobbies, need to be considered on a case-by-case basis. Consideration will be given to such matters as the type of usage, visibility, and traffic flow.

Building Additions and Renovations

No less than 50% of project costs.

Relocation or Replacement

The name of an existing facility will remain for the life of the building. The name on a facility to be demolished will not be transferred to a new facility except in such cases when a useful facility is relocated to serve the greater interest of the university.

Entire Buildings

Names of buildings present special considerations for naming opportunities. In general, a building should be named as directed by a donor only if a minimum of 50% of the privately secured funds but not less than $1 million is contributed by or at the direction of the donor.
