UNC-Chapel Hill Trustees Lift 16-Year Moratorium On Renaming Campus Buildings

The Board of Trustees at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill voted to lift a moratorium on renaming campus buildings and memorials. About 30 campus buildings are thought to have namesakes with ties to white supremacy or slavery.

The freeze on renaming any campus buildings or monuments was implemented by the board in 2015, after it voted to change the name of a classroom building named for a reputed Ku Klux Klan leader.
