University of Richmond Naming Survey by the Gallup Organization
Members of the University of Richmond community are encouraged to participate in a confidential Gallup survey about conventions for naming buildings, spaces, professorships, and programs at UR. You can access the survey via the unique link sent to you by Gallup.

Individual survey responses will be kept confidential. Overall results will be shared with the Naming Principles Commission, which has been charged with making recommendations to President Hallock and the Board of Trustees. It is expected that top-line survey results will be made public in the spring semester.

If you have questions about the survey, please email gallupsurvey@richmond.edu.
