Legacy Review Task Force

For the 2020-21 academic year the Legacy Review Task Force was charged with a two-fold task.

First, to review a report prepared by Western Libraries Heritage Resources on the history and significance of building names on Western's Bellingham campus, and to decide if names of particular buildings warrant consideration for removal.

Second, to review the names associated with named colleges, particularly Huxley College of the Environment, and determine whether particular names warrant consideration for removal.

The Task Force was not charged with considering new names for buildings or colleges if it ultimately advances a recommendation for renaming.

The Task Force submitted its report and recommendations to President Randhawa on June 14, 2021.
