Request for Advice and Suggestions

In a report adopted by the Trustees in March 2016, the Board’s Wilson Legacy Review committee encouraged the Board to consider naming the atrium in Robertson Hall in a way that would bring a more diverse presence to the campus, noting that the atrium “serves as the principal entryway into the Woodrow Wilson School.”  The atrium can be entered either from Scudder Plaza or from Prospect Avenue, and is immediately adjacent to Dodds Auditorium, which is named for Harold Dodds *14, president of the University when the School of Public and International Affairs was named for Wilson.

In referring West College to the Committee on Naming, President Christopher Eisgruber ’83 described it as “the most prominent and central building on campus that is not currently named to honor an individual, family or group.” He said “the Trustees felt it provided an excellent opportunity to make a strong statement about Princeton’s commitment to diversity and inclusion.” West College houses such offices as the Dean of the College, the Dean of Undergraduate Students, Admission, Financial Aid and the Registrar.
