Policy: Naming recognition
- Recognition through naming is conferred:
- in alignment with the legislation, policy and strategic aims of the University;
- on the basis that it does not compromise the values, integrity, autonomy or reputation of the University; and
- following a transparent and rigorous process.
- Naming of assets in recognition of philanthropy:
- acknowledges both significant individual gifts and gifts made to the University over time;
- is conferred:
- at a level and for a duration commensurate with the contribution; and
- on receipt of gift or as outlined in the gift deed; and
- does not confer any material benefit to the donor, nor special privileges, control or responsibility for the asset named.
- Naming of assets in recognition of outstanding achievement or contribution to the University:
- reflects the diversity of the ANU community and our responsibility to Indigenous Australia;
- is conferred at a level commensurate with the achievement or contribution;
- is considered only when the strategic or cultural benefit to ANU is greater than the potential funding opportunity; and
- is not conferred on current students or members of staff.
