Discussion of James Madison College name change (July 13, 2020)
Earlier this month the interim dean of the James Madison College responded to correspondence regarding diversity and equity concerns within the college from concerned alumni and stakeholders.
“I am aware of the interim dean of James Madison College planning for on-going dialogues regarding diversity, equity and inclusion concerns within her college, including the suitability of its name. While it is appropriate for the college to discuss diversity concerns, in addition to DEI efforts happening around our full campus, there is an administrative process for any renaming efforts that go beyond one college or unit.”
