Faculty ask chancellor, Board of Trustees to end moratorium on building renaming

This 2015 moratorium froze the renaming of campus buildings until 2031 after an academic building named after a prominent figure with ties to white supremacy was renamed Carolina Hall. Chancellor Kevin Guskiewicz has presented a petition regarding the moratorium to Richard Stevens, chairperson of the Board of Trustees, urging Guskiewicz to end the moratorium. There are still roughly 30 buildings on UNC's campus that are named after figures with ties to white supremacy.
