On July 1, 2020, the Building Name Review Committee received a proposal to remove the name of LeConte from the Department of Physics buildings.
At this time, the Building Name Review Committee solicits and welcomes feedback on the proposal for LeConte Hall. The initial comment period will remain open for 2-5 weeks depending on the volume of responses. Responders may indicate that their comments remain private; if not so indicated, the Committee will curate and post comments on its website.
This committee review process helps determine if the current name of a building should be changed. Identifying a permanent new name for any building approved for un-naming is a separate process that requires additional consultation with our campus community at a later stage.
The initial comment period for LeConte Hall closed on August 7, 2020 (step #2 of the review process).
Comments will continue to be accepted through the review process.
