The University’s Committee on Naming is soliciting suggestions for the names of two campus spaces: the East Pyne arch, above, that faces Firestone Library, and a new public garden to be developed on the roof of an underground section of the library along Nassau Street. Suggestions can be submitted through the committee’s website: namingcommittee.princeton.edu.
The naming committee’s work is one of several initiatives recommended by the University’s Wilson Legacy Review Committee to expand Princeton’s “commitment to diversity and inclusion.” Other initiatives underway include:
The installation of a marker that offers both positive and negative elements of Woodrow Wilson 1879’s legacy. The University is finalizing the selection of a designer for the marker, which will be located on Scudder Plaza.
The addition of artwork and photography within public spaces on campus. Artwork has already been added to the Carl A. Fields Center and the engineering school.
Incorporating Princeton’s lesser-known history into campus life through walking tours, historical markers, and inclusion in freshman orientation.
