    As necessary, College organizational units may petition for name changes, or to form new organizational units, to ensure that they adequately reflect their responsibilities, the needs of their constituents, best practices in their fields, or other legitimate purposes.  Any change in the name of an organizational unit of the College must be approved at the institutional level.  

    Please note that this policy does not pertain to the naming of College facilities, physical spaces, academic programs, scholarships, and endowed or annual funds after individuals, families, foundations, corporations, or other entities.  Such naming is governed by Plattsburgh College Foundation and SUNY Board of Trustees Naming Opportunity Policies.
