Univ. of Georgia system to review names of buildings


Georgia’s public university system announced it will review the names of all the buildings and colleges on its campuses weeks after a column in a college newspaper advocated for changing the name of one school. 

The announcement on Wednesday says an advisory group will make a report to the University system’s board after the review about any recommended changes. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports the announcement comes after a guest column in the University of Georgia’s student newspaper called for the journalism school to change its name. The school is named after Henry Grady, a journalist and editor who campaigned against equality for freed slaves.
