Professor Larry Jackson joins JHU committee on naming buildings and programs

Professor and BHPLA founder Larry Jackson has been named a co-chair to the Johns Hopkins Committee to Establish Principles on Naming. The committee is working to develop institutional-level procedures for evaluating renaming requests, which could then be applied to specific cases by decision-makers at the divisional level. The committee’s creation was announced this summer alongside several initiatives aimed at deepening the institution’s commitment to building a diverse, equitable, and inclusive community.
